Canadian defensive back Mikael Charland has re-signed with the Alouettes for two years, per sources.
The 25-year-old was released by Ottawa in June and signed the same week with Montreal. He contributed to special teams for 12 games making one tackle and made an impression.
The six-foot-four, 216-pounder played USports football at Concordia University in Montreal.
Charland was selected in the second round, 16th overall by the Redblacks in the 2016 CFL draft. A groin injury during Ottawa’s first pre-season game that year set the Gatineau, Que. native back and saw him play in just three games in his rookie season.
