And Henoc Muamba goes toooooooooo…
After a drawn out bidding process, the highest bidders for Henoc Muamba’s services are none other than the Montreal Alouettes.
With his brother Cauchy already playing in Edmonton, many expected the Eskimos to sign Muamba there but speculation is that the Alouettes could offer him a starting job instantly. They aren’t paying him pennies either.

That contract would make Muamba one of, if not *the* highest paid defensive player in the Canadian Football League.
However, defense isn’t the source of Montreal’s below-average season: It’s the offense and most notably the “quarterback carousel” recently featuring Jonathan Crompton’s return to the six-game injured list.

It’s been said that Kevin Glenn wants to stay in Saskatchewan but if the Montreal Alouettes really want to take a run at this year’s Grey Cup, expect Jim Popp to pick up the phone and call Jeremy O’Day in the next couple days.
