ALOUETTES ACQUIRE QB ADAMS FROM LIONS

Montreal – The Montreal Alouettes announced on Friday that the club has acquired the negotiation rights to quarterback Vernon Adams Jr. from the BC Lions in exchange for the team's first round pick in the 2017 CFL Canadian Draft.

Adams Jr. (5'11'', 200 lbs.) spent his senior year as the University of Oregon Ducks starting pivot, where he played at a very high level completing 168 of his 259 passes good for 2,643 passing yards while throwing 26 touchdown passes and being intercepted only eight times. The Pasadena, CA native maintained a 64.9 completion rate with the Ducks, adding 147 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 83 carries. He has without a doubt been one of the most dynamic college football players over the last five years.

Prior to joining the Ducks, Adams Jr. led the Eastern Washington Eagles offence during three seasons. Over the course of his collegiate career, the 23-year-old quarterback threw for an impressive total of 13,081 passing yards, scoring 136 touchdowns. During his last two season with the Eagles he was a finalist for the Walter Payton Award, awarded to the top offensive player in the NCAA FCS. He made rookie mini-camp appearances with the Seattle Seahawks and the Washington Redskins. Adams Jr. maintained a stellar 35-9 as a starter in the NCAA.

Adams Jr. should arrive in Montreal in the next few days.

Als have Bridge, Cato, Boyd, Crompton and Adams (if he signs). One of those guys will be let go. Jones should see what the asking price for Cato is.
