TORONTO – The Toronto Argonauts Football Club announced today the team re-signed American RB A.J. Ouellette.

Ouellette, 27, played 13 games for the Double Blue in 2022, filling in as the lead back when Andrew Harris was injured in week 10, and rushed for over 500 yards and two touchdowns while catching 38 passes for 350 yards and one more major. That performance was enough to earn the former Ohio Bobcat an East All-Star nomination. The 5’10, 210lb bruising running back was one of the heroes of the 109th Grey Cup as he scored two touchdowns in the second half propelling the Argos to another championship. The three-year CFL veteran has played 22 regular-season games for Toronto and rushed for nearly 800 yards and two scores with 43 catches for 389 yards and another two touchdowns.
