Henoc Muamba took a trip the La Belle Province.
The ratio-breaking Canadian linebacker spent time meeting Alouettes coaches and seeing the facilities last week.
After returning north of the border from the NFL in 2015, Muamba signed a lucrative two-year deal with Montreal where he played four games making 14 tackles in 2016. Then-general manager Jim Popp shopped Muamba prior to a $55,000 bonus that was due on Feb. 16, 2016. Saskatchewan was one of the interested team and the Als released Muamba he eventually signed with the Riders. Kavis Reed is now the general manager of an entirely different regime which has Montreal in the mix.
Following two seasons in Saskatchewan, the Riders put Muamba on the trade block in mid-February, but when no deal was consummated, the 28-year-old became a free agent after the Riders released him before an off-season payment was due on Feb 15.
Last season Muamba had his best year since the CFL all-star campaign he put together in 2013. He played in 17 games making 82 tackles, three forced fumbles and two interceptions to earn the Riders Most Outstanding Canadian award.
Overall Muamba has played in 73 career games since Winnipeg selected him No. 1 overall in the 2011 CFL Draft. He has recorded 267 tackles, 74 special teams tackles, 11 forced fumbles, six sacks, four interceptions and one touchdown.
