Long days and restless nights for some fans are over Weston Dressler is back with the Riders. The deal was made official yesterday, and Weston took to the field to shape into CFL shape in hopes to play this Sunday against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Dressler took a moment to speak with the media yesterday and had some humbling things to say about returning to Rider Nation.
