Denodus O’Bryant was at home waiting for the phone to ring.

The running back from Washington, Mo., didn’t realize just how much of a long-distance call it was going to be.

“I got a call, and my agent said, ‘Hey, you got a contract offer,’ ” O’Bryant said. “I said ‘where?’

“He said, ‘Calgary, Canada.’

“I was like ‘Canada, huh? I’ve never been there.’

“He said, ‘Well, you only have a few days to get a passport.’ ”
