Terrell Jana, a second-round pick of the Saskatchewan Roughriders in the 2021 CFL Draft, has retired from professional football according to TSN’s Farhan Lalji.

While he still remains on the #Riders roster formally, it appears as though Terrell Jana has decided to retire after one @cfl season. Was the top receiver selected in 2021 #CFLDraft, 17th overall. Played in 2 games & caught 1 pass. Bright kid with a lot of interests.

The Burnaby, B.C. native dressed for two games as a rookie in 2021 and made one catch for seven yards in a Week 2 victory over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. He spent most of the season on Saskatchewan’s practice roster as he was buried behind other Canadians such as Justin McInnis, Brayden Lenius, Jake Harty, Mitchell Picton, and Kian Schaffer-Baker on Saskatchewan’s depth chart.

The Virginia product made 123 receptions for 1,481 yards — 12 yards per catch — and five touchdowns in 49 games with the Cavaliers. His best season came in 2019 when he finished with 74 catches for 886 receiving yards and three touchdowns in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
