The Sparrows finally chose to part with the services of the 30-year-old Quebecer, after having suspended him until further notice on Friday. The former Université Laval Rouge et Or signed a two-year contract with the team in April.
The Sûreté du Québec arrested Normand on charges of luring and inciting sexual contact with a minor last Thursday. He pleaded not guilty to the charges against him that same day, before being released.
Normand was in his third season with the Alouettes, after four campaigns with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. In 10 games in 2022, he made just one tackle and had 26 yards.
