QB Vernon Adams Jr. reunites with Alouettes

Vernon Adams Jr. will get a second shot with the Montreal Alouettes.

3DownNation insider Justin Dunk first reported Adams was in Montreal.

The quarterback signed a one-year deal with the Als on Tuesday after getting cut by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats last week.

Adams began his professional career with Montreal in 2016, starting three games that year.

The former Oregon Duck was traded to the Saskatchewan Roughriders midway through the 2017 season before being dealt to the Ticats in 2018 in the deal that sent rush-end Charleston Hughes to Regina.

But Adams became expendable after the Ticats signed former Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel, who became starter Jeremiah Masoli’s backup.

Adams has thrown for 583 yards and four touchdowns in his CFL career. He also has rushed for five majors.

The Alouettes (0-2) are in Regina to face the Roughriders (1-1) on Saturday.
