The Montreal Alouettes have signed three players, including quarterback Quinten Dormady out of Central Michigan.

The six-foot-five, 219-pound native of Boerne, Texas completed 190-of-294 pass attempts (64.4 percent) for 2,312 yards, 14 touchdowns, and nine interceptions as a redshirt senior in 2019. He worked out with the Green Bay Packers after going unselected in the 2020 NFL Draft but did not sign a contract with the team.

Dormady originally committed to Tennessee where he appeared in 13 games over three seasons (2015-17). He completed 56.8 percent of his passes with the Volunteers for 1,282 yards, seven touchdowns, and six interceptions.

His junior season was cut short due to shoulder surgery, after which he transferred to the University of Houston. He played sparingly with the Cougars, which allowed him to redshirt before transferring to Central Michigan.

The move came one day after franchise quarterback Vernon Adams Jr. was placed on the six-game injured list. Veteran backup Matthew Shiltz is expected to start on Saturday against the Ottawa Redblacks with rookie Shea Patterson serving as his backup.

The Als also signed a pair of Canadians on Wednesday, including defensive back Jermaine Gabriel and longsnapper Zach Greenberg.

Gabriel appeared in five games for the Elks earlier this season and is an experienced starter in the secondary. He was selected by the Toronto Argos in the second round, 17th overall during the 2013 CFL Draft.

The 31-year-old has recorded 239 tackles, 37 special teams stops, seven sacks, forced four fumbles, nabbed two interceptions and scored one defensive touchdown through 100 games. He also won a Grey Cup with the Argos in 2017.
