O'Donnell Joins NFL Team


Matt O'Donnell is off to join the Cincinnati Bengals.

The towering six-foot-10, 340-pound offensive lineman with the Queen's Gaels signed as a free agent with the NFL club Tuesday.

With the lockout ending Monday, NFL teams started getting back to the business of football Tuesday as they were allowed to sign their own free agents, draft picks and undrafted players, plus make trades.

O'Donnell was selected in the second round, 15th overall, of the CFL Canadian college draft in May by the Saskatchewan Roughriders.
However, he opted instead to take part in a tryout with the NBA's Boston Celtics despite having not played basketball since high school.

I guess the basketball dream is dead. I read that the Detroit Red Wings purchased Kris Draper from the Winnipeg Jets for $1, yeh one dollar, twenty years ago. I think if the Riders could sell O'Donnell's rights to some eastern team for $1 they'd be better off.
