The Montreal Alouettes announced on Wednesday that they had agreed on the terms of new contracts with seven of their players, including Quebecers Jean-Samuel Blanc and Félix Faubert-Lussier.
Financial details of all the deals have not been released by the team.
During those five seasons in Montreal, Blanc, 30, has become a staple of the defensive line, making 59 special teams tackles in 71 games with the Alouettes. In 2019, he finished fifth in the Canadian Football League (CFL) with 21 tackles on special teams.
In 2019, Faubert-Lussier was in his first season with the Sparrows, after two campaigns with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. The 29-year-old wide receiver caught nine balls for 102 yards in 16 games.
Linebacker DJ Lalama, defensive lineman Bo Banner, wide receiver Kaion Julien-Grant, defensive back Dominique Termansen and defensive tackle Cameron Lawson, all Canadians, have also come to an agreement with the Alouettes.
Lawson was the team’s second-round pick (16th overall) in the 2020 draft.
