The Montreal Alouettes have re-signed American receiver Reggie White Jr. and released American defensive lineman Mike Moore, the team announced on Monday.

White Jr. caught 53 passes for 722 yards and two touchdowns over 15 games in 2022, finishing second on the team in receiving yards behind Eugene Lewis. He suffered a season-ending knee injury late in the year but is expected to be ready for the start of the 2023 regular season.

The six-foot-three, 210-pound target has recorded 71 receptions for 899 yards and two touchdowns over two seasons in the CFL. He also had a brief stint with the New York Giants after going unselected in the 2019 NFL Draft.

The club also announced that it has released American defensive lineman Mike Moore. The 29-year-old made 31 tackles, six sacks, and one forced fumble this past season over 18 starts at defensive tackle and defensive end.

The six-foot-four, 269-pound defender has made 100 tackles, 23 sacks, and two forced fumbles over 66 career games as a member of the Ottawa Redblacks, Edmonton Elks, and Alouettes.

Montreal also officially announced the signing of linebacker Avery Williams, who was recently released by Ottawa.

“We are happy to add a player of Avery’s caliber to our defensive squad, even more so that he has already played for our defensive coordinator Noel Thorpe,” said general manager Danny Maciocia in a statement. “We are not only getting a good player, but also a great teammate.”
