The 34-year-old was with the Saskatchewan Roughriders for eight seasons before departing in 2016, landing a deal with the rival Edmonton Eskimos. After his release from the Esks in 2017, he re-joined his hometown team in Regina. Getzlaf collected 6,192 yards to his name along with 41 touchdowns over his career.

After playing for the Regina Rams, Getzlaf was picked in the fifth round, 33rd overall, by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in 2007. He then joined the Riders in 2008, winning the Grey Cup in 2013 while twice being named a West Division All-Star (2012 and 2013).
