Alouettes add two receivers and a linebacker to the roster

MONTREAL – The Montreal Alouettes announced on Tuesday that the team has signed international receivers Mike Davis and Corbin Louks to two-year deals, while international linebacker Tevlon Clark signed a one-year deal with the club.

Davis (6’2″, 195 lbs.) racked up 2,753 receiving yards and 18 touchdowns on 200 receptions in 49 games during his collegiate career with the University of Texas Longhorns. His total receiving touchdowns, receiving yards and receptions place him fourth all-time in the storied program’s record books. The Dallas, TX native amassed 100 yards or more in ten games during his time with the Longhorns, which is tied for second place in team history. Following his senior season, the 23-year-old picked up a second team All-Big 12 honours. Following his time with the Longhorns, he was signed by the Oakland Raiders, as well as the Toronto Argonauts.

Louks (6’0″, 200 lbs.) was a member of the Denver Broncos during the 2015 training camp, following stints with the Kansas City Chiefs and Seattle Seahawks. Last summer, the 26-year-old receiver played in three pre-season games with the Broncos, scoring a touchdown on a 24-yard reception, while returning three kickoffs for 52 yards. He also played for the Boston Brawlers of the Fall Experimental League. The Danville, CA native debuted his collegiate career as a quarterback with the University of Utah Utes, before transferring to the University of Nevada, where he played as a safety with the Wolfpack, before playing receiver during his senior season.

Clark (6’1″, 235 lbs.) joins the Alouettes after beginning the 2015 season with the Saskatchewan Roughriders, recording 14 tackles in three games, including ten in the team’s season opener against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. The 24-year-old played his first two seasons in the NCAA with the Virginia Tech Hokies, prior to joining the Towson University Tigers, where he picked up defensive all-conference honours in 2013. During that season, the Greensboro, NC native amassed a team-high 145 defensive tackles, including 10.5 tackles for losses and 4.5 sacks. He also knocked down five passes, while forcing five fumbles and recovering three.
