The Montreal Alouettes have signed American left tackle Nick Callender to a contract extension through the 2024 season.

The six-foot-six, 321-pound Callender played 16 games in 2022 with an offensive line that helped quarterback Trevor Harris pass for 4,157 yards, the second-highest total in the CFL. He and his O-line group also helped quarterback Dominique Davis score 13 rushing touchdowns, the second-highest total in the league.

“Nick is an extremely physical player who makes the opposition pay for every inch they try to gain,” general manager Danny Maciocia said in a statement. “He quickly learned our playbook and adds very good depth to our offensive line.”

Callender has played in 21 games for the Alouettes since 2021.

The Colorado State University product spent time with the Indianapolis Colts and the Seattle Seahawks in the NFL.
