The same day Henry Burris was released by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, the veteran quarterback received a substantial multi-year offer to join the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
However, the 38-year-old is in no hurry to sign with another team.
"I'm not in a rush. This will be my last contract, so I want to do it right," said Burris on Thursday.
Burris was released after the Tiger-Cats signed for Toronto Argonauts pivot Zach Collaros as a free agent.
"Congratulations to Hamilton and Zach Collaros," said Burris, who wasn't surprised by the move. "He's an exciting young quarterback and has a great future in this league.
"I'm ecstatic and appreciative that the Ticats granted me my release so that I can move forward."
Burris, who threw for almost 5,000 yards last season, is intrigued by the interest being shown by the Blue Bombers and other teams in the league.
"Just to see the interest that's coming in is gratifying and I'm just excited to see what the future holds," added Burris.
