Montreal Alouettes Sign 3 Players With NFL Experience

The Montreal Alouettes announced on Monday that they have signed three players who have experience playing in the NFL. They have signed receiver Tyjon Lindsey, defensive back Bryce Cosby, and defensive tackle Jerron Cage.

WR Tyjon Lindsey – Oregon State (25 y/o, 5’9, 182 lbs)

Tyjon Lindsey played his first 2 seasons with Nebraska in 2017 and 2018. He played in 16 games for the Cornhuskers collecting 15 receptions for 98 yards before transferring to Oregon State.

Lindsey played for Oregon State from 2019 to 2022 appearing in 39 games with 14 starts. He made 75 receptions for 917 yards and 9 touchdowns with OSU. He added 184 yards rushing on 25 carries (7.4 average) and 3 touchdowns. He even generated some passing offense completing 4 of his 5 passes for 115 yards and a touchdown.

Lindsay was described as having the following strengths by Pro Football Network ahead of the 2023 NFL Draft, “Fires into routes, stays low exiting breaks, and comes back to the ball. Finds the clearing in the defense, tracks the pass in the air, and adjusts to errant throws.”

Lindsey was signed by the Seattle Seahawks as an undrafted free agent in 2023 and was waived on August 28.

DB Bryce Cosby – Ball State (24 y/o, 5’10, 188 lbs)

Bryce Cosby played for Ball State from 2017 to 2021 where he appeared in 56 games with 55 starts. At Ball State, he amassed 228 solo tackles, 163 assisted tackles, 23 passes defended, 22.5 tackles for a loss, 10 interceptions, 5 sacks, and 3 forced fumbles.

Cosby was First Team All-MAC in 2021 and 2020. He was also named the Defensive Player of the Game in the 2020 Arizona Bowl. He was described by NFL Draft Buzz as having “Good instincts and anticipation reads and reacts with discipline. Dangerous with the ball in his hands.”

Cosby signed with the Las Vegas Raiders as an undrafted free agent in 2022 where he spent time on their practice roster until he was waived in August 2023.

DT Jerron Cage – Ohio State (25 y/o, 6’2, 305 lbs)

Jerron Cage played for Ohio State from 2018 to 2022 appearing in 43 games including the post season with 7 starts. At OSU he contributed 13 solo tackles, 20 assisted tackles, 3 sacks, and a touchdown. He also had 6 tackles for a loss over the 35 regular season games.

Tony Pauline of Pro Football Network described him as “Cage possesses the measurables and playing style to be a defensive tackle in a four-man line at face value, but he’s been minimally productive and never impacted the game at Ohio State.”

Cage signed with the New Orleans Saints as an undrafted free agent in 2023 and was waived on August 29.
