The Montreal Alouettes announced on Monday that the club has released international linebacker Bear Woods.

Woods (6'0'', 245 lbs.) played seven seasons for the Alouettes, as he made his debut with the team in the 2011 Eastern Semi-Final, where he made five tackles. In 40-career games with Montreal, the 30-year-old amassed 232 defensive tackles, including 15 sacks, while intercepting three passes. He was voted the East Division Most Outstanding Defensive Player twice in his career  in 2014 and 2016.

"We would like to thank Bear for everything that he has done for this team. Everyday, he came to work with energy, passion and dedication," declared Alouettes General Manager Kavis Reed. "We feel at his point and time that we have different options on our defence that will allow that unit to keep performing at a high level."

This is a real shocker! One of the top three CFL linebackers for sure. Odd that Montreal did not trade him if they wanted to move to a younger player.
