Montreal, September 19, 2012 - The Montreal Alouettes announced on Wednesday that they have signed non-import running backs Emmanuel Marc and Chris Jennings to the team's practice roster.

Marc (5'10'', 205 lbs.) rejoins the Montreal Alouettes after spending the 2010 season on the team's practice roster, helping Montreal win the Grey Cup in November. The 29-year old was also on the team's active roster in 2011 but did not dress for a game. The Spring Valley, NY native joined the Alouettes at the beginning of the 2010 season after spending training camp with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. He had previously signed professional contracts with the Miami Dolphins and the BC Lions.

In college, Marc rewrote the Hudson Valley Vikings' record book after rushing for 3,273 yards and scoring 30 touchdowns in his career. His rushing yardage total eclipsed the previous record of 1,724 yards set by Dennis Greene. Marc was also named the NJCAA Offensive Player of the Year following the 2003 season.

Jennings (5'10, 218 lbs.) also returns to the Alouettes after having spent part of the 2009 season on the team's practice roster behind Avon Cobourne and Brandon Whitaker. The Alouettes released him as a good gesture in August, allowing him to sign the Cleveland Browns with whom he played nine games over two seasons gaining 220 yards on the ground on 63 rushes, including one touchdown, while adding 56 yards on nine receptions. Jennings also suited up for the Hartford Colonials of the UFL in 2010.

The Alouettes also announced the release of non-import receiver Liam Mahoney from the practice roster.
