Montreal – The Montreal Alouettes announced on Tuesday that international receiver Kenny Stafford is returning to the nest, as he has signed a one-year deal with the club.
Stafford (6’3″, 204 lbs.) helped the Eskimos win the Grey Cup last season following a trade during the off-season. In 18 games with the Eskimos, the 25-year-old completed the season with 732 receiving yards on 47 catches, while leading the team with nine touchdown receptions.
“We are very happy to have Kenny back in the nest. He brings size, speed, and big play abilities to the lineup,” said Alouettes General Manager and Head Coach, Jim Popp.

During the Western Final with the Eskimos, Stafford made three catches for 74 yards while scoring a major. He also caught a 24-yard pass during the Eskimos’ Grey Cup victory.
