REGINA -- The Saskatchewan Roughriders had one thing to offer Weston Dressler that no other CFL team could match. Adidas Neo Dames Zwart . History. Dressler re-signed with the only CFL club he has played for Thursday after passing his physical. He was back in his usual No. 7 jersey for practice after quarterback Seth Doege made the change to No. 9. "Ill tell you right now, I couldnt be more excited to be where Im at, right now today. Thats what Im focused on now is here, help this team win some football games and with the ultimate goal of winning the Grey Cup," Dressler said in Regina. Dressler was released by the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday and cleared NFL waivers the following day, making him an unrestricted CFL free agent. The Ottawa Redblacks also made a formal contract offer to Dressler and the Calgary Stampeders were reportedly in the mix for his services. Dressler thanked the other teams for their interest in him. But in the end, he said there was "too much history" to walk away from Saskatchewan. "I cant really put it down to one thing other than I didnt want to play against (defensive end) John Chick," joked Dressler. "No, I mean theres just a lot here. Theres a lot Ive gone through with this organization, with a lot of guys on this team, coaches and players, front office ... the fans. Everything here, it really does mean a lot to me." The Riders released the 29-year-old Dressler in January -- roughly two weeks before he was scheduled to become a CFL free agent -- so he could explore his options south of the border. Shortly after working out for the Chiefs, Dressler signed with the NFL club and donned No. 13 in honour of Saskatchewans rabid football fans, affectionately dubbed the 13th Man. Dressler appeared in three exhibition games with Kansas City, recording a 19-yard kickoff return. The five-foot-eight, 179-pound native of Bismarck, N.D., had spent his entire six-year CFL career with Saskatchewan, registering 442 catches for 6,531 yards and 43 TDs. He surpassed the 1,000-yard receiving plateau five times, including the last four years. Dressler had five catches for a game-high 81 yards and a TD in Saskatchewans 45-23 Grey Cup victory over Hamilton last November. He was a two-time all-star and the CFLs top rookie in 2008. Roughriders general manager Brendan Taman said he spoke with Dressler a few times before the slotback re-signed with Saskatchewan. "He really wanted to be here obviously, so it made my job a little bit easier thats for sure. You know, there were some nervous times for a while, but hes a pretty loyal individual thats for sure," said Taman. Fans and businesses in Saskatchewan also tried to lure Dressler back with offers of free sandwiches, cupcakes and car washes. A Twitter effort was launched called .BringWestonHome. "Really, Im always amazed with the support from this fan base, so to see something like that, it did surprise me. But at the same time, it doesnt surprise me because they show support in numerous ways and that was just one of their ways of doing it for me at the time," he said. Dressler joked that he "probably wont be the healthiest man" if he takes advantage of all the offers, but said he would share with his teammates. Riders quarterback Darian Durant had spoken to Dressler after the slotback was released by the Chiefs. Durant said it was great to have Dressler back on the field Thursday. "He has that chemistry with me that goes back years and years and I think were on the same page with everything. We see everything the same way, so I think hes going to bring that big play ability back to the system and its going good to have him back," said Durant. "Im just happy to have him back and hopefully we can finish our careers together," added the pivot. Adidas Superstar Sale Nl . Numbers Game breaks down the Canucks signing of Radim Vrbata.

Seth Sinovic hadnt found the net since last years Eastern Conference semifinals. But the Argentinian centre forward and the hard-working hometown left back both came up big on Wednesday night, with clutch goals that lifted Sporting Kansas City into the East finals with a 3-1 overtime victory over the New England Revolution. Sinovic scored in the 79th minute to force the extra period, nine minutes after Dmitry Imbongos goal forced a 1-all tie in Wednesdays match and gave the Revolution a 3-2 aggregate lead in the two-match series. Then, 23 minutes into overtime, Bieler -- a late second-half substitute -- delivered the series-winner off a cross from Benny Feilhaber. "I think this game shows the character that our team has," said Sinovic, whose only previous career goal came last year in Sportings East semifinal loss to Houston. "We were down two goals in New England and needed a goal to make things a little more realistic coming home, and then they tied it tonight and we needed another goal. So hopefully we can bring that to the next round." Bieler, who entered in the 84th minute, led Sporting with 10 goals in the regular season. But the designated players minutes had fallen off iin recent months, and he last scored on a penalty kick on Sept. Adidas Superstar Blauw Wit. . 7 against Columbus. "He and I had a talk here last week," manager Peter Vermes said. "I said to him, Theres more soccer to play here. You dont understand yet what the playoff environment is like, but the opportunities are going to come and youre going to stick one away for us, maybe two, and theyre going to be big goals. He is what he is. Hes a goal-scorer, and its great to see him get his confidence on that goal because we need him down the stretch here." Defender Aurelien Collin also scored for Sporting, who will open the conference finals against Houston on Saturday. Collin knocked in a deflection in the 41st minute for his second goal of the post-season, but Dimitry Imbongos goal, a free kick in the 70th minute tied Wednesdays leg at 1 and put the Revolution up 3-2 on aggregate. Sporting finished with a 32-5 advantage in shots and could have put in one more goal late in overtime, but Graham Zusi hit the crossbar with Revolution keeper Matt Reis injured outside of the penalty area. "We tried, and I felt we had a couple chances here and there," New England coach Jay Heaps said. "We were hoping to get to penalties because we were hanging on and we thought we had the advantage there."
