Vonk tore his ACL after dressing in nine games for the Alouettes last season. The 27-year-old has played in 36 carer games since being selected in the fifth-round, 36th overall by Saskatchewan in the 2013 CFL draft.

Haidara played in 16 games making five receptions for 28 yards in 2017 for Montreal. He was selected in the second-round, 12th overall by the B.C. Lions in the 2013 CFL draft. The 29-year-old has played in 70 career CFL games with the Lions, Riders, Bombers and Alouettes.

Charland signed a two-year extension in December after contributing to special teams for 12 games making one tackle. He was a second-round pick, 16th overall by the Ottawa Redblacks in the 2016 CFL draft.
