Matechuk was a long snapper for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the Canadian Football League. They released him in early June after U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced his May 31 arrest at the International Bridge crossing at the U.S.-Canada border.
CBP said Matechuk told an officer he was travelling to Hamilton from Alberta.
A message for Matechuk's lawyer Monday was not returned. His jail term includes credit for two days.
