Raiders work out Grey Cup MVP RB Kory Sheets

Jeff Gross

If you earn the MVP of the CFL's version of the Super Bowl, NFL teams tend to take notice. That's what running back Kory Sheets did with the Saskatchewan Roughriders last season and it caught the Raiders eye enough for them to want a closer look.

The Raiders requested permission to work out Sheets and the Roughriders granted that permission as first reported by the Leader-Post. He was at Raiders headquarters on Monday for his work out and even posted a picture on his Instagram account of him entering the Raiders' facility.

If the team decides they would like to sign him, they must wait until February 15 which is when he officially becomes a free agent.

The 2013 CFL All Star played at Purdue. He originally entered NFL in 2009 as an undrafted free agent. He spent his first camp with the 49ers but didn't make the final roster. He later signed with the Dolphins where he had his one NFL carry in his two seasons in the league. It went for five yards. The last team he played for was the Carolina Panthers in 2011.

He found his opportunity in the CFL, racking up 2,875 yards and 23 touchdowns over two seasons including nearly 1600 yards last season. His 20 carries for 197 yards and two touchdowns to lead his team to the Grey Cup is no doubt what got the Raiders attention.
