Rough news for the Saskatchewan Rough Riders. I liked this guy last year. He can wing it all over the lot. Very accurate.

The Roughriders will likely watch this development. Truth is that most CFL contracts allow players to seek NFL work, and if He sticks with Green Bay, he probably wouldn't have stayed in Saskatchewan very long.
Some players want to use the CFL as a stepping stone (ala Jeff Garcia)- which can make for one or two good seasons, but that's tough on teams and ticket sales. It's also tough here because the CFL is a very different game, and many QBs take 2-3 years learning well enough to start (ask Warren Moon or Doug Flutie, they'll agree).
Saskatchewan has been grooming Darian Durant for 4 years, and last year (as a first-time starter) was a breakout season for him, earning a Western All-Star nomination.
Graham wanted to start in front of Durant after being here a few months. I'm sure he's an excellent QB, but that is just too much to expect.
We all wish him well, and if things don't work out down south, he can always work his way up north!!
