ALOUETTES SIGN SHOLOGAN

MONTREAL - Keith Shologan has a new home.

The Canadian defensive lineman signed a two-year deal with the Montreal Alouettes on Wednesday, a day after being released by the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

The six-foot-two, 295-pound Shologan, a 31-year-old native of Spruce Grove, Alta., had 22 tackles and two sacks in 18 games with Winnipeg last season.

"We are very happy to add a player of Keith's calibre to our defensive squad,'' Montreal GM Kavis Reed said in a statement. "We have acquired a Canadian player which will give us even more flexibility with our ratio, all while disrupting opposing offensive lines.''

Shologan has played for Saskatchewan, Ottawa and Winnipeg over his nine-year CFL career. He has amassed 204 tackles, 25 sacks and six fumble recoveries.

"Argh, there goes another player that Chris Jones should of picked up (because I know his name). I am so mad as Jones doesn't know what he is doing, where I have watched this team for years and am an expert. I am not going to cheer for the Riders because of him." Said the PART TIME RIDER FAN.

As my buddy Curty Wurty always says "People are idiots".

Go Riders

Keeps Montreal on pace to be the oldest team by far in the CFL, giving them a good shot at being #1 in the East in 2017. Solid leadership on that team by far - Durant and Lewis will take them to the promised land. The team to watch in 2017.

I guess Montreal one of the best Defensive teams last year saw value in Shologan, great pickup of a Canadian to add depth.
