Canadians Making The Grade South Of The Border In The NFL

Current Stars Rekindle NFL Interest In Canadian Players

That said, several Canadian born players past and present have left a positive mark on the National Football League. The list of current players includes Austin Collie who was born in Hamilton, Ontario and entered the NFL in 2009 as a wide receiver in the Indianapolis Colts juggernaut offense. Collie has recorded 1,839 receiving yards and 16 touchdowns in 41 career games for the Colts.

Minnesota drafted Nate Burleson, born in Calgary, Alberta, as wide receiver back in 2003. Burleson enjoyed a 1,006-yard, nine TD season with Vikings in 2004, and a 649-yard, nine TD season with the Seattle Seahawks in 2007. Since then, Burleson has settled in with the resurgent Detroit Lions over the past two seasons – catching a career high 73 passed in 2011.

Canadian Getting His Kicks In The National Football League

Another Canuck enjoying a measure of success south of the border is place kicker Shaun Suisham who hails from the tiny town of Wallaceburg, Ontario. After two stints with the Dallas Cowboys and another two the Washington Redskins, Suisham signed a four-year deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers prior to the 2011 season.
