Report direct from Als media. Alouettes sign six of 2015 CFL Draft prospects, including Canadian quarterback Brandon Bridge.

Montreal, May 25, 2015 - The Montreal Alouettes announced on Monday that the club has signed six players selected in this year's CFL Canadian Draft. The team was able to reach agreements with quarterback Brandon Bridge, former Université de Montréal Carabins teammates Mikhaïl Davidson and Anthony Coady, receiver Alex Charette, as well as offensive linemen James Bodanis and Quinn Lawlor

"We are excited to get these young men under contract," declared Alouettes General Manager Jim Popp. "They are all great collegiate players and have the ability to have a bright professional future ahead of them."

Brandon Bridge (6'5'' 235 lbs.) signed a two-year deal with the Alouettes. The former South Alabama Jaguars' pivot, played 20 games over the course of the last two seasons, recording 2,325 passing yards and throwing 16 touchdown passes. The 23-year-old quarterback added five rushing touchdowns and 467 rushing yards on 138 carries with the Jaguars. The Mississauga, ON native sat out the 2012 season after transferring from Alcorn State University, where he threw 24 touchdown passes while scoring eight rushing touchdowns on 120 carries over the 2010 and 2011 campaigns. His strong collegiate career culminated when the Montreal Alouettes selected him in the fourth round (39th Overall) in this year's draft. He participated in the Dallas Cowboys' rookie mini-camp earlier this year.

The versatile Quebec-native receiver Mikhaïl Davidson (5'8'', 175 lbs.) agreed to a two-year contract with the Alouettes. The Université de Montreal product led his team last season with seven touchdowns and 769 receiving yards. He added 72 rushing yards including a touchdown in nine carries. The Alouettes' fifth round pick (40th total) played on a regular basis on special teams racking up 49 yards on four kickoff returns as well as a touchdown and 287 yards on 30 punt returns. In addition to lifting the prestigious Vanier Cup in front of friends and family last year, Davidson was named a RSEQ all-star and a CIS first team all-Canadian in 2014.

Anthony Coady (5'10", 190 lbs.) signed his first professional contract with the club, which locks up the Quebec prospect for two years. The dynamic defensive back, a second member of the 2014 Vanier Cup champions, Université de Montréal Carabins, was selected in the seventh round (57th overall). The 23-year-old was named a RSEQ all-star following an exceptional season, cumulating 14 tackles while adding an interception and knocking down a pass. He received that same honour in each of his last three seasons. During his two first years with the Carabins, he was coached by current Montreal Alouettes defensive coordinator Noel Thorpe.

James Bodanis (6'5'', 297 lbs.) , who signed a 2-year deal, made the switch from the defensive tackle position to the offensive line during his last year with the Michigan State Spartans, where he played in 4 games. The 23-year-old athlete previously played in his hometown with the University of Toronto Varsity Blues. The Alouettes selected him in the third round (24th overall), a supplemental pick received in a transaction with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

Alex Charette (6'1", 200 lbs.) signed a four-year deal with the team. The former Guelph University receiver led the Gryphons with 49 receptions in 2014. The 23-year-old completed the season with 567 receiving yards while scoring six touchdowns, earning himself a OUA second-team all-star selection. In 2013, he was voted the team's co-MVP. The Alouettes selected him in the fourth round (36th total).

The Alouettes have also signed offensive lineman Quinn Lawlor (6'4", 304 lbs.) for two seasons. The team's sixth round pick (48th overall) played for the Brigham Young University Cougars, former Alouettes' receiver Ben Cahoon's alma mater. The 23-year-old Calgary, AB native played seven games over the past two seasons.

All these players will attend the team's rookie orientation on-field sessions that will be held at Bishop's University starting Wednesday, May 27 at 2:00 p.m. at Coulter Field, which will be followed by media availability.

Open practice in Saint-Hubert

During the team's 2015 training camp, the Alouettes will hold its annual intra-squad game on Sunday June 7 at Parc Rosanne-Laflame in Saint-Hubert.

Individual tickets

Individual tickets sales for the upcoming season will begin on May 28 with a pre-sale via the Alouettes Facebook and Twitter accounts. The general sale to the public will begin on June 1, at Admission.com or 1-855-790-1245.

Report direct from Als media. Alouettes sign three draft picks, including Laval native Jesse Joseph.

Montreal, May 27, 2015 - The Montreal Alouettes announced on Wednesday that the club has signed three of its draft picks, including Laval, QC native defensive end Jesse Joseph. The team also inked offensive lineman Jacob Ruby as well as linebacker Nicholas Shortill. All three players will be on the field at 2:00 p.m. this afternoon during the team's first rookie camp workout on Coulter Field at Bishop's University.

"I am looking forward to seeing these three athletes on the field," said Alouettes General Manager Jim Popp. "They were all determined to get their contracts finalized before the start of camp. It will give them a full opportunity to make the team."

Joseph (6'3", 262 lbs.) was drafted in the third round (21st  overall) by the Alouettes in 2013 Canadian CFL Draft. He played 37 career-games in four seasons with the University of Connecticut Huskies, recording 118 tackles and 13 sacks. His most dominant performance came against North Carolina on September 8, 2012 where he picked-up eight tackles in a single game. He completed his senior year in 2013 with 40 tackles, including six for losses and a sack. The former Vanier Cheetah participated in the Chicago Bears rookie mini-camp in 2014.

Ruby (6'7'', 315 lbs.), who was drafted in the first round (eighth overall) by the Alouettes this spring, suited up for the University of Richmond Spiders for four seasons where he started 47 of the 48 contests for his team. The 22-year-old athlete earned All-CAA Third-Team honours in his senior year. The London, ON native attended the New York Giants rookie mini-camp earlier in May.

Shortill (6'2'', 223 lbs.), the team's second round pick (13th overall) in May, racked up an impressive total of 121 defensive tackles, including 104 unassisted and eight quarterback sacks in 26 contests as a McMaster University Marauder. During his four-season collegiate career, the 22-year-old linebacker notched four interceptions. The Nobleton, ON native was named a CIS second team all-Canadian as well as an Ontario University Athletic first all-star team. He raised the Vanier Cup as a Marauder in 2011.

Report direct from Als media. Training Camp Report - Day 2.

Sherbrooke, June 1, 2015 - Poor weather conditions awaited the Montreal Alouettes for a second straight day, forcing the team to practice at the MultiSport Roland-Dussault indoor complex. 24 hours after the opening of training camp, the players picked right up where they had left off the day before keeping the intensity level high.

Even indoors, both practices took place at a frenetic pace giving way to several interesting matchups and more spectacular plays. The speed and execution of the plays were raised from the previous day, reflecting the intensity of this year's training camp.

Still under the watchful eyes of the Quebec University-level coaches, several players were able to raise eyebrows by showcasing their skills and making exciting plays. For a second straight day, veteran slotback Nik Lewis had an excellent outing, he who caught a superb throw from Tanner Marsh for a touchdown. The 12-year CFL veteran has made his presence felt on numerous occasions. Sherbrooke-native Samuel Giguère is also settling quite rapidly with his new team, as he stood out among receivers in Monday's training sessions with multiple outstanding grabs. 

S.J. Green also had a great day on the field, as he keeps making every catch look easy. He still wowed the crowd by making a superb 60-yard catch. The most circus-like catch came from rookie Chandler Jones who managed to catch a ball that was tipped by 3 teammates before landing safely in his hands.

On defense, safety Mike Edem and linebacker Bear Woods each pilfered a pass.

Quarterback Jonathan Crompton really showcased his leadership skills on the field today, as he could often be seen discussing strategy with his talented receiving corps. The Alouettes quarterback really took control as he shows more and more leadership on the team he helped reach the Eastern Final last year. 

All draft selections are now under contract
Furthermore, the Alouettes signed their 2015 first round pick (fourth overall), linebacker Chris Ackie, to a 3-year deal. All of the team's 2015 draft picks are now under contract and at training camp.

Tomorrow
The 2015 Alouettes Training Camp will continue tomorrow at Coulter Field, as the team will partake in a single practice beginning at 8:30 a.m.

Report from Als media. Training Camp Report - Day 3.
Sherbrooke, June 2, 2015 - The Alouettes returned to MultiSport Roland-Dussault complex in Sherbrooke on Tuesday for a shorter day as only one training session was scheduled. Players preserved their momentum and enhanced their on field training in preparation for a busy afternoon filled with team meetings.

The return of two pillars
Having missed the first couple of days of training camp for personal reasons, Alouettes veterans Chip Cox and Jerald Brown jumped onto the field to re-join their teammates and begin training for the upcoming 2015 season. Both didn't seem out of tune, immediately making their presence felt, as Cox made an outstanding interception, which got the attention of the players on the sidelines.  As for Jerald Brown, he did what he does best, which is effectively covering opposing receivers while creating havoc for anyone that is matched-up with him.

An explosive receiver
A player that really stood out was the dynamic and explosive receiver and returner James Rodgers. He made his mark last season on special teams as a returner and once again proved his versatility to the Alouettes coaching staff Tuesday. Continuing his excellent performance, Rodgers made some outstanding catches, including a 50-yard touchdown catch, before making an outstanding grab in double coverage only a couple of plays later. Both coaching staff and teammates noticed his excellent performance, praising his ability from the sidelines.

A couple of newcomers
A couple of players made their first appearances, including Chris Ackie who jumped on the field for the first time. The team's first pick (fourth overall) signed a three-year deal Monday with the Alouettes. Defensive back James Huguely, newcomer to the Alouettes' nest, stood out making his first interception of training camp.

Defensive tackle Alan-Michael Cash was back on the field after spending the past two days on the sidelines recovering from a minor injury.

Transactions
Chip Cox and Jerald Brown were not the only players to jump on the field for the first time, as newcomer Justin Caliste also made his spring debut for the Alouettes on Tuesday. The international receiver/returner was added on the roster after the team let international defensive back Jamaan Webb go. Offensive lineman Ryan White and receiver Mardy Gilyard were placed on the injured list.

Tomorrow
The 2015 Alouettes training camp will continue tomorrow at Bishop's University's Coulter Field, as the team will partake in two consecutive practices beginning at 7:50 a.m.

Report direct from Als media. Quarterback Rakeem Cato is crowned the Top Performer of the week!

Montreal, July 7, 2015 - Montreal Alouettes' quarterback Rakeem Cato was named the CFL's Top Performer of the week following an electrifying performance in his first professional game, leading his team to an impressive 29-11 victory over the defending Grey Cup champions Calgary Stampeders.

The former Marshall University pivot experienced a flawless performance, playing like a veteran throughout the entire game. The 23-year-old quarterback recorded a stellar 241 passing yards, hitting six different targets from the Montreal offensive arsenal, including three for touchdowns to former Stampeders Nik Lewis, Quebec native Sam Giguère and newcomer Cody Hoffman. Cato managed to complete 20 of 25 passes, good for a 80% passing percentage efficiency. He completed his first seven passes of the game.

After four years as the Thundering Herd pivot, Cato left the University as the all-time leading passer with 131 touchdowns passes and 14 079 passing yards.

Top Performers of the Week in the Canadian Football League are selected by former CFL players turned analysts on TSN and RDS Duane Forde, Matt Dunigan and Pierre Vercheval. Fans can go vote for their choice via the CFL Twitter account. Each week, the player who obtains the most fan votes will receive bonus points.

Montreal, July 28, 2015 - The Montreal Alouettes announced on Tuesday that the club added quarterback Anthony Boone as well as receiver B.J. Cunningham to the roster.

Boone (6'0", 225 lbs.) played four seasons for the Duke University Blue Devils where he completed 540 of his 923 passes good for 5,789 yards while throwing 38 touchdown passes. The 23-year-old also carried the ball 230 times for gains of 800 yards and 16 touchdowns. During his time at Duke, the Weddington, NC native led the team to 28 wins and three Bowl games. He was selected a captain for the 2013 and 2014 seasons.

Report direct from Als media. A remarkable start in July for Rakeem Cato.

Montreal, July 29, 2015 -  The sensational CFL debut of Montreal Alouettes quarterback Rakeem Cato has not gone unnoticed, as he has been selected third among the CFL's most outstanding players in July. In three starts, the 23-year-old pivot has lead the team to a 2-1 record. His victories came against both Grey Cup finalists, the Calgary Stampeders and the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

Cato (6'0'', 178 lbs.)  opened many eyes during the first steps of his professional career. As the starting quarterback for the Alouettes, Cato threw for 822 total yards and 4 touchdown passes. His stellar beginning can be linked to the strong chemistry he has built with his receiving core. His relationship with receiver SJ Green has helped them become one of the fiercest duos in the CFL.

He had a flawless outing against the Calgary Stampeders during his first ever professional game, completing 80% of his passes for 241 yards and three touchdown passes en route to a 29-11 victory over the reigning Grey Cup champions. His performance earned him the top spot among week 2 CFL Top Performers.

Visiting the Winnipeg Blue-Bombers the following week, the former Marshall University Thundering Herd once again put up a stunning performance, recording an impressive 317 total passing yards. He connected with S.J. Green on numerous occasions, allowing him to top his personal record with 180 receiving yards.

He brilliantly met the challenge ahead against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in a heated battle that finished 17-13 in favour of the Alouettes. In addition to picking up 264 passing yards, he also ran for a total of 30 yards, extending plays and making sure his offence stayed on the field. He then threw an outstanding pass to S.J. Green for a touchdown.

From the NCAA to the CFL, the one aspect of his game that has never changed is his throwing accuracy, as he sits third for completion rate among all CFL quarterbacks (72.2%).

Top Performers in the Canadian Football League are selected by former CFL players turned analysts on TSN and RDS Duane Forde, Matt Dunigan and Pierre Vercheval. Fans can go vote for their choice via the CFL Twitter account. Each week, the player who obtains the most fan votes will receive bonus points.

I read a interesting report about Michael Sam's time at Als from TSN's Farhan Lalji.

"If Michael Sam had issues in the #Als room, were they b/c he was gay, or b/c he received a roster spot he didn't earn?
http://www.theprovince.com/sports/football/bc-lions/Michael+just+wasn+good+enough+that+only+part/11294521/story.html?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter " @FarhanLaljiTSN

".@FarhanLaljiTSN yes Michael Sam definitely looked slow for that position in the #CFL game he played for @MTLAlouettes! Interesting report!" @MykAussie
