TORONTO – The Toronto Argonauts Football Club announced today the team he extended American LB Wynton McManis.
McManis, 29, signed with Toronto as a free agent in February of 2022 and has turned in back-to-back CFL All-Star seasons for the Double Blue. 2023 saw the 6’1, 225lb linebacker tally 79 defensive tackles, five for loss, four sacks, four interceptions (two returned for touchdowns), and one fumble recovery in 16 games. In 2022, the Mississippi native managed to lead the Argos in total tackles with 95, 19 clear of second place, in just 14 games. He would add three sacks, two interceptions, and one forced fumble on his way to his first career CFL All-Star nod. Before joining the Argos, McManis spent 2020 and 2021 with the New Orleans Saints and Miami Dolphins, playing in one game for the Saints in 2021. The Memphis alum came to the CFL in 2017 with Calgary and spent his first three CFL seasons with the Stamps, winning his first Grey Cup in 2018. For his career, McManis has 271 defensive tackles, 49 special teams tackles, 11 sacks, six interceptions, three forced fumbles, two touchdowns, and two Grey Cup championships in 75 games.
