The Montreal Alouettes have released three players, including Canadian offensive lineman Patrick Davis.

Originally selected in the fourth round of the 2021 CFL Draft, Davis has spent three seasons in Montreal and has primarily served as the club’s sixth offensive lineman. In 24 career appearances, the six-foot-five, 312-pound native of Gatineau has made two starts, including one earlier this season.

Prior to jumping to the CFL, Davis played four seasons at Syracuse, dressing for 25 games without a start.

Also released were American defensive end Damontre Moore and receiver Kameron Brown.

Moore was a third-round pick of the New York Giants in the 2013 NFL Draft and went on to play 66 career games with the Giants, Dolphins, Raiders, Seahawks, Cowboys, 49ers, Colts, and Panthers. He recorded 97 career tackles, including 12 tackles for loss, 11 sacks, four forced fumbles, and four batted passes. The 31-year-old played in one game for the Toronto Argonauts in 2022 but had yet to see action this year.

Brown was signed alongside Moore on September 5. The six-foot-three, 210-pound target played two seasons at Coastal Carolina, making 56 catches for 911 yards and eight touchdowns.

The Alouettes (9-7) return to action on Saturday, October 14 when they visit the Edmonton Elks (4-12).
