Alouettes re-sign Canadian FB Spencer Moore, OL Landon Rice who was part of blockbuster Johnny Manziel trade

The Alouettes have re-signed two Canadians, according to Montreal Gazette reporter Herb Zurkowsky.

Moore has played seven CFL seasons and 97 regular season games. Last year was Moore’s first in Montreal after the Als sent a conditional draft choice to the Saskatchewan Roughriders in a December 2018 trade.

The 29-year-old Moore was originally selected in the fifth round, 44th overall during the 2013 CFL draft. He has recorded over 40 special teams tackles, while making 34 catches for 281 yards in his career. Moore won a Grey Cup in 2013 with the Riders as well as the Vanier Cup in 2011 with the McMaster University Marauders.

Rice was one of the pieces acquired by Montreal when the Als executed the blockbuster trade for quarterback Johnny Manziel and fellow offensive linemen Tony Washington in exchange for Canadian defensive end Jamaal Westerman, receiver Chris Williams and first round draft picks in 2020 and 2021.

The 31-year-old Rice has spent six seasons in the CFL after going unselected in the 2013 CFL draft. He has become a reliable national along the offensive line. The six-foot-six, 315-pounder has switched between Hamilton and Montreal throughout his career.

Alouettes general manager Danny Maciocia is settling into the GM chair and slowly putting his fingerprints on Montreal’s roster.
