Alouettes sign FB Alexandre Dupuis, seven others

MONTREAL — The Montreal Alouettes announced on Wednesday that the club has signed deals with national fullback Alexandre Dupuis, as well as American offensive lineman Chris Schleuger. The team also signed national offensive lineman Patrick Davis, who was drafted this past May. Dupuis (6’3”, 243 lbs.) started his CFL career with the Toronto Argonauts in 2014, after the team drafted him in the fourth round (36th overall) that spring. He then played with Edmonton from 2017 to 2019. In 75 games in the CFL the 31-year-old former Université de Montréal Carabin caught 24 passes for 255 yards.

Really glad to see Schleuger back.

Have to agree. Tony Washington is 35, battled some injuries last season. Schleuger provides good insurance at a key position.

Interesting to see Rishaun Simonise re-surface for another CFL shot? Former top rated receiver prospect (Dinos), with big receiver size and had an NFL look, but didn't stick in previous CFL stops with the Bombers & BC. Als have lots of competition at receiver - both imports & Nationals, but not sure how many Canadian receivers they will carry ?

Excellente nouvelle pour Schleuger.
