There is no running back who will make more money in the Canadian Football League (CFL) in 2023 than William Stanback.

In addition, Stanback is guaranteed a $25,000 bonus if he shows up for training camp and passes his medical exams.

The second-highest running back on the Canadian circuit is Andrew Harris (Toronto Argonauts), who will make at least $140,000 in 2023.

Stanback’s Alouettes teammates Jeshrun Antwi and Walter Fletcher are ninth and 12th on the list, respectively. You will receive at least USD 95,000 or USD 93,000.

Quebec’s Sean Thomas-Erlington of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats wins $94,000. He also has a clause in his contract that allows him to be paid $800 for any clashes where he will be grounded for at least 51% of his offensive plays.
