“We are pleased to continue to count on the services of Wesley, who had an excellent season in 2022 and continues to improve,” Alouettes general manager Danny Maciocia said in a statement released Monday. Opponent attacks must constantly be wary of his presence on the field.

In 2022, in his second season with the Sparrows, Sutton was named to the Canadian Football League East Division All-Star Team. The 26-year-old American had 79 defensive tackles, four quarterback sacks and one interception. He also forced two fumbles.

The “Als” also signed American wide receiver Trevon Bradford. The 25-year-old played for Oregon State University Beavers from 2016 to 2021 and recorded 151 balls for 1,904 yards and 14 touchdowns in 52 games during his time in the NCAA.
