James Wilder Jr. sit out the year

Wilder Jr. issues statement; may sit out 2018 - CFL.ca

“I am announcing that I’ve decided to sit out the CFL season in order to train and work in the United States in order to better provide for my family,” Wilder said in a statement posted by the CFL’s official website. “It’s a decision I’ve prayed on while speaking at length with the people closest to me, including my mentors. I wish it could be different. I don’t want to put my football dreams aside but as the father of four, playing for $56,000 Canadian (about $45,0000 USD) without any protection from career-ending injury isn’t enough to give my family comfort.”

CFL’s Most Outstanding Rookie after generating a combined 1,405 yards for the Argonauts, who won the Grey Cup. Wilder Jr. said in the statement that he has drawn interest from “several NFL teams,” but that the Argonauts won’t allow him to pursue those opportunities, or to provide him with a new contract.
"If I could start my life all over again, I would be a professional football player, and you damn well better believe I would be a Pittsburgh Steeler."
