The Montreal Alouettes have signed American receiver Quartney Davis.

A former four-star recruit from Houston, Tx., Davis spent four seasons at Texas A&M from 2016 to 2019. After redshirting his first year and failing to record a statistic in his second, he broke out as a redshirt sophomore in 2018 while recording 45 receptions for 585 yards and seven touchdowns in 13 games. The six-foot-one, 200-pound standout followed it up with 54 catches for 616 yards and four touchdowns in 11 games the next season, before declaring early for the 2020 NFL Draft.

Davis attended the prestigious Senior Bowl all-star game and received an invite to the NFL Combine, clocking a 4.54-second 40-yard dash and a 35.5-inch vertical jump. Despite being projected as a mid-round draft pick, he went unselected due to concerns regarding his work ethic and slow finish to the previous season.

The 24-year-old signed with the Minnesota Vikings as an undrafted free agent but was released as part of final roster cuts. He joined the Indianapolis Colts the following year, making two catches for 29 yards in one preseason game, but was placed on injured reserve ahead of the season. Davis most recently attended rookie mini-camp with the Houston Texans.
