The Montreal Alouettes added five Quebec players to their lineup on Wednesday.
The team has initialed agreements with long-throw specialist Pierre-Luc Caron, linebacker Alexandre Chevrier, receiver Régis Cibasu, defensive back Kerfalla-Emmanuel Exumé, as well as offensive lineman Jason Lauzon-Séguin , who were all free agents.
Caron spent four seasons with the Calgary Stampeders (2016-19), playing 71 games. The Laval native was a fifth-round pick (42e overall) by the Stampeders in 2016. The 27-year-old footballer won his job in his first campaign and played all 18 games of the season, in addition to the West Finals and the Gray Cup Finals. He won the trophy the following season.
Chevrier played 18 games with the Saskatchewan Roughriders in 2019, recording 12 special teams tackles. The 28-year-old native of Pointe-Claire was selected by Saskatchewan in the seventh round (55e in total) in 2017.
Cibasu played 16 games in 2019 with the Toronto Argonauts, who drafted the 27-year-old in the third round, 20e in total, in 2018. The Congolese played under Danny Maciocia with the Carabins de l’Université de Montréal from 2014 to 2018, being elected three times to the RSEQ all-star team.
Exumé played in all 18 Winnipeg Blue Bombers games in 2019 and helped the Manitoba squad win the Gray Cup. The 26-year-old Montrealer had 25 tackles in special teams. The Bombers’ eighth-round pick (70e in total) in 2019 also played under Maciocia with the Carabins.
Finally, Lauzon-Seguin made two Gray Cup finals in his first three seasons in the CFL, winning in 2016 with the Ottawa Rouge et Noir. He has appeared in 54 CFL games since being selected for seventh overall in the 2016 Draft. He was named to the Eastern Division All-Star in 2017.
