Als cut LB Kyries Hebert upon his request

The Alouettes have released linebacker Kyries Hebert upon his request.

Montreal had told Hebert to speak to other teams about establishing a market value for him to stay with the Als. But the feeling doesn’t seem to be mutual at this point.

Hebert made a career-high 110 tackles, forced three fumbles, made two sacks and intercepted one pass in 18 games last year. He was named an East Division all-star in 2017 and has spent the past six seasons in Montreal. He made 391 defensive tackles, including 21 sacks in 92 games for the Als.

“We would like to thank Kyries for everything he has done for this organization on and off the field. He has impacted the lives of many since he arrived in Montreal and we wish him the best in his future projects”, declared Alouettes general manager Kavis Reed in a statement.

Hebert has played in 162 career CFL games recording 582 tackles, 145 special teams tackles, 28 sacks, 18 forced fumbles, 12 interceptions and two defensive touchdowns.
