MACHESNEY PARK - A.J. Wentland is exploring all options when it comes to a pro football career.
His first goal is the NFL. The former Harlem Huskie could be selected in the NFL Draft next week or if he isn't drafted he could be invited to an NFL rookie camp next month as a free agent.
There's also the option of playing in the Canadian Football League. That's why Friday Wentland will be in Akron, Ohio. He tells Eyewitness News that he'll participate in a CFL tryout camp being put on by the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Other CFL teams will also be involved.
The camp will be conducted similar to the NFL combine with players getting timed in the 40, having their jumping ability measured, doing shuttle drills and position drills.
Wentland will graduate from Division II McKendree University next month where he was one of the nation's top D-2 inside linebackers.
