The Montreal Alouettes have placed American receiver Quan Bray on the suspended list.

The five-foot-ten, 185-pound target had an impressive rookie season with the Alouettes in 2019. He caught 58 passes for 818 yards and six touchdowns in sixteen games as part of an improved Montreal offence. Bray also amassed 123 yards on 14 punt returns and 45 yards on two kickoff returns.

He was arrested in February 2020 after being caught with 157 pounds of marijuana in El Paso, Texas with Auburn teammate Greg Robinson. One of the charges against him was dropped, while he pleaded guilty to the other and was required to pay a fine.

“We are happy to once more be able to count on a receiver of Quan’s caliber. He adds depth to our talented group of receivers,” said general manager Danny Maciocia in a press release.

“Quan fully realizes that he is getting a second chance and knows that he will have to walk a straight line if he wishes to continue making a living practicing the sport he loves.”

During the 2019 Eastern Semi-Final, the 28-year-old made two catches for 58 yards.

“Above his performance on the field, Quan is a great teammate and is appreciated by everyone in the locker room. We are happy to have him back with us. He has showed great character and we are convinced that he will make all the right decisions moving forward,” said head coach Khari Jones.

Bray spent time in the NFL from 2015 to 2018, suiting up for the Indianapolis Colts, Buffalo Bills and Houston Texans. In 24 games with the Colts, he caught six passes good for 75 yards. The Lagrange, GA native also suited up for the Birmingham Iron of the Alliance of American Football (AAF) in 2019.
