The Argonauts selected
Brissett with the second overall pick in the 2020 CFL Draft.
A native of Alberta, Brissett will return north of the border after a foray in the American college game at the University of Virginia. He joins a receiving corps that underwent a major facelift this offseason with the departures of each of the team's top four receiving threats from a season ago. The team's pick of Brissett likely indicates he should be a significant part of the team's attempt to rebuild a passing game that compiled the third-most yards and the most passing points per game (11.0) in the league last season.
