Jamal Morrow is getting his shot at playing pro football north of the border

NCAA Football: Stanford at Washington State James Snook-USA TODAY Sports

Jamal Morrow is known for a lot of things. From his appearance on the Price is Right to his good luck on coin flips and his affinity for airplane cheeseburgers there have been plenty of articles written about the former WSU running back. But he was also a very productive player on the field. And now he’s getting his shot north of the border.

Earlier this week, Morrow agreed to a contract with the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the CFL. In 50 games for the Cougs, Morrow totaled 1,795 yards and 9 scores on the ground, to go along with 202 catches for 1,748 yards and 14 touchdowns. Along with his time at kickoff returner, Morrow ranks third in program history with 4,219 all-purpose yards.

After college, Morrow had a couple of tryouts in the NFL, before eventually signing with Orlando in the short lived Alliance of American Football, but the team waived him during training camp.

Now Morrow gets another shot at pro football north of the border. The versatile back didn’t stick in the NFL, but his skills will give him a chance to make a run at some playing time when the season kicks off in June.
