The Montreal Alouettes recently capped their season with a surprise Grey Cup victory over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, earning the organization its first title in over a decade. The focus now shifts to next year when the club will look to win back-to-back championships as it did in 2009 and 2010.

All three of the team’s quarterbacks are under contract for 2024, including Grey Cup MVP Cody Fajardo. Other notable players who will be back next season include Kaion Julien-Grant, Tyson Philpot, Cole Spieker, Pier-Olivier Lestage, Almondo Sewell, Lwal Uguak, Reggie Stubblefield, Kabion Ento, and Marc-Antoine Dequoy.
