MONTREAL
- The Saskatchewan Roughriders have traded Canadian fullback Spencer Moore to the Montreal Alouettes for a conditional eighth-round draft pick.

Moore, a 28-year-old Hamilton native, has been a member of the Roughriders since being drafted in the fifth round by Saskatchewan in 2013.

He caught eight passes for 63 yards this past season and added seven special-teams tackles.

"Spencer is a savvy player who will help both our offence and our special teams,'' Alouettes general manager Kavis Reed said. "His size and ability to get open will help our offence better protect our quarterback, while being a viable option for the latter.''

Meanwhile, the Roughriders signed American defensive back Loucheiz Purifoy to a one-year extension, keeping him with the team through 2019.

The Roughriders acquired Purifoy in a trade with the Ottawa Redblacks in August.

Elsewhere, the Calgary Stampeders signed Canadian receivers Austen Hartley and Michael Klukas, American receiver Armanti Foreman and American linebacker Warren Long.

All four spent time on the Stamps' practice roster in 2018.

The Toronto Argonauts also signed a Canadian, inking offensive lineman Alexandre Gagnon.


The 26-year-old will be looking to make his CFL debut after getting cut by the Stampeders in training camp this year.

I was wondering what would happen after they signed Lavoie.

I really liked Moore, and I think there's a lot more in him as well, but Lavoie is kind of a better version of Moore, at least right now, and we're pushing for a championship this year so better now is important.

Agreed, Spencer was a tremendous special teams player and a great blocker. Lavoie simply made him redundant, plus Lavoie is just a better receiver. Best of luck Spencer, it has been a pleasure watching you play.

I gota agree. Lets just list moore really wat he is a TE. Lavoi came in to Montreal as a rookie a few years back & thats wat he was & still is.
With the CFL Defenses now with the SAM LB really being a DB now. Offenses using more Bigger TE Packages would turn the tables
