REGINA -- Ben Heenan isn't getting antsy.
Heenan, the University of Saskatchewan Huskies offensive lineman whom the Saskatchewan Roughriders selected with the No. 1 pick in the 2012 CFL draft, has yet to sign with the team.
But the 22-year-old product of Grand Coulee expects something to happen before the Roughriders' rookie camp opens next Wednesday.
"Between Mr. (Brendan) Taman (Saskatchewan's general manager) and my agent (Dan Vertlieb), they'll get it figured out," Heenan said Wednesday. "I have lots of faith in both of them.
"It's something I'm not really worried about," he added. "I have full confidence it'll get done before camp. Obviously I'm not Dan's only client and I'm sure I'm not Mr. Taman's only player that still has to sign. It's just a matter of sorting through all the paperwork and getting it hammered out."
In fact, none of the Roughriders' four draft picks has signed as yet. Saskatchewan also selected Calgary Dinos linebacker Sam Hurl (second round, 12th overall), Sherbrooke Vert et Or linebacker Kevin Regimbald-Gagne (fifth round, 35th overall) and Sherbrooke receiver Ismael Bamba (sixth round, 39th overall) in the draft.
Taman said the week before rookie camp opens is usually when draft picks sign with their respective teams. That said, the GM noted that things have been somewhat different for every CFL team since the draft on May 3.
