The Montreal Alouettes have signed receiver Eugene Lewis to a one-year contract extension through the 2022 season.

The six-foot-one, 208-pound Lewis completed the 2021 season third in the CFL with 964 receiving yards on 62 receptions while scoring nine touchdowns. The 28-year-old maintained his high level of play throughout the season, even though he caught passes from three different starting quarterbacks.

“Eugene continues to be a premier target for the Alouettes and always does everything he can to help his team win,” Alouettes general manager Danny Maciocia said in a statement.

He earned his first CFL all-star selection and the 2022 season will mark his fifth in the nest. In four seasons in la Belle Province, Lewis has caught 185 passes for 3,044 yards and scored 18 touchdowns in 51 games.

He played three seasons with the Penn State University Nittany Lions and spent one year with the University of Oklahoma Sooners. In 51 NCAA games, including 19 as a starter, the Norristown, PA  native caught 122 passes for 1,569 yards and 10 touchdowns.
