2019: Blue Bombers
A six-game stint on the injured list in late August/early September meant that Jeffcoat missed a third of the season, but the veteran defensive end was still productive and then dominant in the playoffs. Jeffcoat had five sacks, two forced fumbles, three pass knockdowns and a tackle for a loss in the regular season. He was part of a stifling defensive effort in the 107th Grey Cup win, registering four tackles, two sacks and a forced fumble in the win over Hamilton.

He was back to his dominant ways in the playoffs, registering two sacks in each of the club’s postseason games — the West Semi-Final win in Saskatchewan and the West Final loss in Calgary.
