Canadian tackle Jeff Perrett sticks with Alouettes
By QMI Agency
Offensive tackle Jeff Perrett is staying with the Montreal Alouettes, signing a new three-year deal with the club Tuesday.
The Lethbridge, Alta., native played in 14 games in 2012, missing four weeks with a hyper-extended left knee.
"Today's signing allows us to go to camp with our offensive line intact from one year ago," Alouettes general manager Jim Popp said. "Jeff brings a massive, imposing figure to the right tackle position and is a very difficult player to get around to get to the quarterback."
The 28-year-old is the fourth Canadian lineman to extend with the Alouettes in the off-season, joining guards Andrew Woodruff, Kristian Matte and Ryan Bomben.
