From his twitter:

A lot of people ask me what my next chapter in football is, but I don?t go for one chapter- I go for an entire book. #CFL  #farfromdone

Apparently he's going to one of the Riders open tryout camps.

He's old as sin now, but it'd be cool to see him in the league again.

His last full season in 2017 he had a 45.0 yard average on 92 punts. Career wise his average was 44+ yards.

It's a little deceiving with how many NFL punts are not caught / returned. But it does show he still has a strong leg.

OTOH he has enough NFL money to buy the CFL. lol

But he can still punt the ball. He is also a Regina boy, has tons on money, and is probably living out his childhood dream.

I think Ryan can still play at a high level. Why he'd want to do that for CFL money I have no idea. Teams have been struggling finding Canadian kickers more than they used to but some still exist.

How much is a Canadian punter worth in the Canadian market at the moment if it forces a team towards 2 kickers on the roster? Not sure but it would be interesting to see him back.

Just to stay busy? Especially if it's for the Riders.

You might be able to convince him to play for the minimum if he's just doing it for kicks (he he).

Maybe he just wants to play football. With the money he's made in the NFL a team that needs a punter could probably get him cheap.

No doubt he still wants to play, and will, for the Riders this year , and will do it very well. It?s not like he s a running back. Cripes, Lui Pasaglia, Bob Cameron and Paul Mccallum all played when they were older than Ryan. Can?t wait to see him play!! Betcha he can still boot the crap out of the ball !!

Jon Ryan isn't the leg he was when he left for the NFL, but he is still a very good punter.

I'm happy for him if he gets to extend his career a couple more years. Would love to see him back in the CFL...even if it is with the Riders. I can't see many teams with a good young kicker cutting them loose for a 38 year old punter though. Riders do sound like a good landing spot for them as Bartel is no spring chicken either.

Which is exactly why he'll probably end up in the CFL again. I'd say he's still got a few seasons left in him.
