Alouettes’ receiver Quan Bray ‘made a mistake’ being arrested with 157 pounds of marijuana

The Montreal Alouettes re-signed receiver Quan Bray after his charges for being arrested with 157 pounds of marijuana reached a conclusion.

Bray was arrested in February 2020 in El Paso, Texas with former Auburn University teammate Greg Robinson. One of the charges against Bray was dropped, while he pleaded guilty to the other and was required to pay a fine.

“He’s a good dude, he made a mistake, things happen. I’m always with my guy Quan, forever,” Montreal quarterback Vernon Adams Jr. told TSN reporter John Lu.

“He’s way more locked in, he said this changed him mentally. He’s ready to be better. It helps hearing the quarterback, one of the franchise players, say that we need him back.”

The 27-year-old Bray had an impressive rookie season with the Als in 2019. He caught 58 passes for 818 yards and six touchdowns in sixteen games as part of an improved Montreal offence. As a returner, Bray amassed 123 yards on 14 punt returns and 45 yards on two kickoff returns.

“I’ve been with Quan since day one. I’ve been talking to Danny [Maciocia] throughout the weeks and always just checking, ‘Hey, what’s up with Quan?’ I’m glad everything worked itself out, an he’s OK to come over and we got him coming back,” Adams Jr. said.

“He’s a great dude, great football player, team guy. I actually talked to him before they announced everything and I was excited, he was excited. I’ve been keeping up with him this whole time. It’s cool that he’s back.”
