The 2017 Toronto Argonauts season is the 60th season for the team in the Canadian Football League and their 145th season overall. The Argonauts will attempt to improve upon their 5–13 record from 2016, return to the playoffs and win their 17th Grey Cup championship. It was publicly announced on February 28, 2017 that Jim Popp would assume the duties of general manager and Marc Trestman would take on head coaching duties. [1]

Preseason

The Toronto Argonauts won their first preseason game with a dominant defensive performance, returning two Montreal interceptions for touchdowns in the game.[5] In the second preseason game, this time on the road, the Argos came back to win against their hated rivals Hamilton – while notably not giving any game reps to Grey Cup-winning quarterbacks Ricky Ray or Drew Willy.[6]
