    CFL commissioner Tom Wright will be making a bigger statement next year regarding drug-using NFLers.

    The Winnipeg Sun reports that Wright revealed plans Wednesday to close the loophole that allows CFL teams to sign suspended NFL drug offenders such as Toronto Argonauts running back Ricky Williams and Blue Bombers running back Onterrio Smith.

    "We've got a soft spot or a deficiency in the policy we need to address," Wright told the newspaper.

    "Right now we do not have language in our current cooperative arrangement with the NFL that prevents what has happened, not only with Onterrio Smith here, but Ricky Williams in Toronto, and many players in the CFL over the last several years."

    Wright also told the Sun he's already spoken with NFL officials about amending the agreement so that both leagues will honour each other's suspensions.
