The Montreal Alouettes are relevant again

After spending the last couple seasons in constant flux and frankly constantly bad, the Montreal Alouettes might be…are you ready for this?…really good this season.

CFL.ca reports the Alouettes are inching toward a trade that would bring them one of the league’s top offensive lineman, Jovan Olafioye.

The deal would reportedly send the negotiating rights to former CFL Draft pick and national offensive tackle David Foucault the other way.

In other words, the Alouettes would be giving up basically nothing, though, of course, the deal could be expanded before it happens.

Montreal’s new general manager, Kavis Reed, has been busy during the off-season. He snagged quarterback Darian Durant from Saskatchewan, a move that could turn out to be high risk or high reward, while also signing the league’s top wide receiver in free agency.

I already had tabbed the Alouettes a winner in free agency, but also adding Durant and Jovan Olafioye hints that Montreal could be pushing for the top spot in the wide open Eastern Division.
