The Argonauts acquired receiver Chad Owens from the Montreal Alouettes on Thursday for a fourth-round pick in the 2011 CFL Canadian draft.

The 5-foot-8, 180-pound Owens, also a return specialist, spent most of the 2009 season on the Als' practice roster. He dressed for one game, against the Argos, and piled up 100 all-purpose yards.

"Chad is an experienced receiver and return specialist who will fill a need for us in the development of our offensive and special teams schemes," Argos director of player personnel Mike Hagen said. "We are excited to acquire a player of Chad's abilities."

Owens has spent time with the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
