The Montreal Alouettes have announced that they have signed American wide receiver, Tyshaun James. The 6’3″, 210-pound receiver stood out at FCS Central Connecticut State University. Before being signed by Montreal, James spent time with the Atlanta Falcons as an undrafted free agent after the 2022 NFL draft.
The pre-NFL draft scouting report on Tyshaun James highlighted his ability to read coverages and find seams to get open. James has a reputation for being an excellent route runner and has good hands. While James lacks the raw speed to outrun defenders, he does have the instincts to attack the ball and make plays on deep balls. James has the potential to develop into a dependable possession receiver for the Alouettes offence.
James is a native of Middletown, Connecticut, that played in 34 games during his college career at Central Connecticut State. During the 2019 season, he played in 13 games and, after the season, was named the All-Northeast Conference team. James accumulated 48 catches for 978 yards and nine receiving touchdowns. He also scored five rushing touchdowns and averaged 88.1 all-purpose yards per game. During his playing career at Central Connecticut, James demonstrated the ability to grow and develop athletically. As a result, he was able to transition from being a role player into a consistent player-maker.
