DETROIT - Former Hamilton Tiger-Cats long snapper Jordan Matechuk says he's sorry for the "extreme stress" felt by those closest to him following his steroid-related arrest in May at the U.S. border in northern Michigan.

Matechuk has broken his silence on the matter, telling The Associated Press on Wednesday that he's eager to resolve the case.

He pleaded guilty earlier this month in Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., to possession of steroids and marijuana, but he still faces sentencing.

Matechuk was released by the Ticats after U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced his arrest in early June.
