He was drafted 36th overall by the Ottawa Renegades in the 2003 CFL Draft. He was signed by the Saskatchewan Roughriders to a contract on February 12, 2007 and played for five seasons before being released on February 10, 2012.[1] He was soon after signed by the Toronto Argonauts on February 13, 2012.[2] Parenteau would go on to win the 100th Grey Cup with the Argonauts. On September 9, 2013, Parenteau was traded to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, along with a 3rd round draft pick in 2014, in exchange for running back Anthony Woodson and a fifth round draft pick in 2014.[3] He retired after 9 years in the CFL in January 2014 after winning 2 Grey Cups (2007 & 2012) and he is the only offensive lineman to ever score a touchdown in a Grey Cup game (2010).
