Just visiting

The star of the "true north" isn't likely to join the NFC North Division any time soon. In fact, Edmonton Eskimos QB Ricky Ray may have found the hospitality a little chilly when he visited Green Bay recently.<p>

Ray, the most valuable player of the Canadian Football League's Grey Cup in 2003, visited the Packers but isn't being pursued by the team, according to a Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel report.

According to the report, the Packers wouldn't mind having the 6-3, 210-pound Ray in camp come summer to get a look at his potential, but aren't planning to make a move to secure his services.

Ray, 24, passed for 4,998 yards, 36 TDs and 13 interceptions while completing 68 percent of his passes in his second season in the CFL. The Sacramento State product must sign with an NFL club by Feb. 29, or his rights revert back to Edmonton.
