MONTREAL — All-star linebacker Winston Venable is now a mainstay on the Alouettes’ defence, after agreeing on Tuesday to remain with the team.
Venable is coming off a career year in his third season with the Alouettes, ranking third in the CFL with 104 tackles and first on his team to go along with five sacks and three forced fumbles. He became a free agent on Tuesday.
“Winston has quickly elevated himself as one of the top defensive players in the league. This was an important re-signing to help anchor our defensive scheme. His work ethic and love for the game makes it a real joy to coach him on a daily basis,” declared Popp.
