“Nick was a great addition to our team in 2021. On top of bringing his contagious smile in our locker room, he was an important cog in our defensive front, forcing opposing quarterbacks to get rid of the ball much faster than they would have wanted,” said Alouettes general manager Danny Maciocia.

In three seasons in the CFL, the former UTEP Miner amassed 78 defensive tackles and 12 sacks, while forcing five fumbles.
