Even though the Green and White are coming off a Grey Cup win in 2013, Chamblin has been hard at work putting together a plan for the 2014 season now that he's done celebrating his first championship as a professional head coach.

"I celebrated, it was a great celebration," said Chamblin. "Now it's time to move forward."

Right now, there are no other workouts scheduled for Dressler but he is getting interest from about a half-dozen teams, so other workouts could be coming his way soon.

UPDATED: Terrell Maze re-signs with Riders

The Saskatchewan Roughriders have locked down one of their best defensive backs.

"Coming off winning a championship, having the best fans, it's hard to walk away from a team like that," he said.

Of course the team is pretty excited to have Maze back on board as well.
