:als_red: Alouettes 2023 talk

S’il désire venir jouer à Montréal, je lui proposerais un bonus de signature avec un salaire de base et des incitatifs intéressants : ex: nombre de passes, verges, équipe d’étoiles, mvp , coupe Grey etc….

Donc s’il produit peu, bonus et salaire de base seulement en contre partie, s’il rencontre les objectifs du contrat, le salaire est plus élevé mais les résultats du club devraient alors être meilleurs.

Sure. Why is that relevant? He may be only slightly older than Grant but he’s sure not the same caliber of player as Grant.

They will chop a limb off if they have to. Plus Zylstra has made around 4 million dollars in the NFL, which allows him to take a guaranteed bonus Jan 1 2024. so teams who are willing to meet his number can spread out some of the money. Looking at his situation last year he ended up making 288k on a practice roster. I have a feeling he will be back in the CFL in the next couple weeks.


And if we look at every fit in the league, the best fit for him is with the Alouettes. They have the #1 spot open, in a system he knows very well where he had success and with a coach that he have good relationship with.


They will have to flush a “written on toilet paper” CFL contract but not necessarily a receiver.

hey can some of the locals help this guy out with some Als game info?

Je ne sais pas si la chose a été soulevée :

" Les Alouettes ont annoncé, jeudi après-midi, l’embauche du receveur de passes américain Austin Mack. Celui-ci a joué quatre saisons avec les Buckeyes de l’Université Ohio State. Âgé de 25 ans, il a effectué des séjours dans les organisations des Giants de New York, des Titans du Tennessee et des 49ers de San Francisco dans la NFL."

Blockquote`Urban Meyer made Mack a top priority much earlier than many top suitors. That initial diligence could pay off June 7 if the Buckeyes land their man.

“The Ohio State coaching staff has definitely been recruiting me hardest,” Mack said. “They were actually the first really big school to offer me, and they’ve been hitting me up almost daily since before last signing day when a lot of teams were focused on 2015 guys. That made a big impact.”

Like Harbaugh, Meyer has won Mack over when it comes to establishing a meaningful relationship.

“Coach Meyer is a heck of a guy,” Mack said. "He takes care of his players and knows exactly what it takes to compete for titles in college football`

• A well-rounded student-athlete, Austin Mack made his mark on the field and in the community at Ohio State
• Graduated in December of 2019 with his degree in consumer and family services
• Played in 45 career games, earning 28 starts, and made 79 catches for 1,050 yards and six touchdowns
• Was one of four wide receivers on the 2019 roster to eclipse 1,000 career receiving yards
• Had a career high in receptions (27), yards (361) and touchdowns (three) as a senior for the Buckeyes in 2019
• Helped Ohio State win three consecutive outright Big Ten championships (2017, 2018, 2019)
• Played in four victories over arch-rival Michigan
• Caught 24 or more passes in each of his final three seasons
• Had at least one catch in each of the final seven games that he played in during the 2019 season, including a season-high six grabs in the College Football Playoff semifinal vs. Clemson
• Was having the best statistical season of his career as a true junior in 2018 before a foot injury in late October ended his year

They must have over 15 by now.

Austin Mack is the most intriguing WR that we recruit this summer with Tyler Snead (2 completely different WR though).

What is sad is all these guys will have only four days and maybe 3 real practices to get an invite to camp. Football is cruel.


Based on the present off-season roster and non-counters + injured players, only 1 player on the present off-season roster will have to be release by no later than May 13,2023; nothing tells us that a veteran won’t be released. Most, if not all rookie WRs, will have the whole training camp to show their talent.


Richard what are the cut-down dates or has that been done away with?

*Cutdowns to take place by 11:59 p.m. ET, excluding non-counters.


  • Cutdowns to take place by 11:59 p.m. ET, excluding non-counters.


  • Rosters to be reduced to 45 players, excluding players on injured lists. Some players will be added to practice rosters in the next days.

Thank you.

Dans la section « transactions » de la LCF, du 9/05, les Alouettes ont congédié deux (2) joueurs:

  • Jakub Szott (n) ligne offensive
  • Taku Lee (gl,) demi offensif

It doesn’t look like the Als will be holding a rookie camp, at least not officially. You would think with all the rookies to sort out it would be helpful. But then again training camp, an intra-squad game, and 2 pre-season games are likely sufficient for that.

Apparently the Tiger-Cats don’t hold a rookie camp either.

D’une certaine façon, ça passe le message aux recrues qu’ils auront tous leur chance de se faire valoir comme les autres joueurs. Peut-être que ça peut avoir son effet sur leur motivation.

L’année dernière, selon mes souvenirs, il n’y avait pas eu également de mini camp pour les recrues, avant l’ouverture du camp officiel le 15 mai 2022.
