Harris is back, Sewell extended !

Montreal, February 9, 2022 – The Montreal Alouettes announced on Wednesday that the club signed a one-year deal with American quarterback Trevor Harris, and have extended the contract of American defensive lineman Almondo Sewell through the 2023 season.

Harris (6’3″, 212 lbs.) joined the Alouettes during the 2021 season, playing in the team’s final four games. In three starts with Montreal last season, the 35-year-old quarterback completed 64 of his 91 passes (70.1%) for 703 yards and eight touchdowns, maintaining a 113.0 efficiency rate.

2022 will mark the veteran’s 10th season in the CFL, following stops in Toronto, Ottawa and Edmonton. In 143 career-games, he completed 2,054 passes for 24,453 yards and 134 touchdowns, on top of hoisting the Grey Cup twice (2012, Toronto; 2016, Ottawa).

Sewell (6’4”, 288 lbs.) registered 19 defensive tackles and five quarterback sacks in 14 games with the Alouettes in 2021, his first season in Montreal. In 153 career-games in the CFL, the 35-year-old amassed 301 defensive tackles and 65 quarterback sacks. The former Akron University Zip won the Grey Cup in 2015 and was voted a CFL All-Star on six different occasions.

“We are happy to continue counting on the presence of such strong veterans who bring leadership to our locker room, on top of having victorious pasts on the field during which they hoisted Grey Cups,” declared Alouettes General Manager Danny Maciocia.
