Alford, a former Winnipeg Blue Bomber who played at Tusculum (2016-19), was signed to a reserve/futures contract in January. Alford helped the Blue Bombers win the Grey Cup last season.
“Basically, I look at it as the same every day,” Alford said. “I come to practice, put my head down and work hard. I want to show them that I’m capable of being a playmaker for this organization.”
