The Chiefs are reportedly set to sign a Canadian Football League receiver with a proven track record of production.

According to TSN.ca and the Kansas City Star, the Chiefs are expected to sign former Saskatchewan Roughriders wide receiver Weston Dressler. Via Arrowhead Pride, Sportsnet.ca also reports that a deal between Dressler and the Chiefs is likely.

Dressler, 28, hauled in 70 passes for 1,011 yards and nine touchdowns for Grey Cup-champion Saskatchewan in 2013.

A University of North Dakota product, the 5-foot-7, 179-pound Dressler has exceeded 1,000 yards receiving in 5-of-6 CFL seasons.

The Roughriders released Dressler this week so he could pursue an NFL career.
