On Monday, Montreal Alouettes settled important documents when an agreement was reached with the wide-ranging receiver BJ Cunningham.
Cunningham said in a telephone interview with the Montreal Daily News: “I’m glad to be back.” When it comes to my salary, I am not the kind of player who would claim to be out of my control. “
He never had any questions about returning to the Montreal team.
“Of course, I can test the free agent market within a few days. On the other hand, I don’t want to leave Montreal. This is a city I love, and I have been established for several years.
“For me, the environment of the game is also very important. With Alouette, my quarterback is very good. [Vernon Adams fils], Good teammates and good coaching staff. It’s worth it, but it won’t show up on salary.
“We have a strong team. Now is the time to complete the work we started in 2019.”
Cunningham has not participated in the competition since August 2019, when he fractured his wrist during the competition. Due to the pandemic, he has enough time to recover and strengthen this part of the body.
A native of Columbus, Ohio, lived in Montreal for a few months and took the opportunity to teach young football players last summer.
He said: “There is no doubt that this is a very frustrating moment for me.” I want to use the 2020 season to get my career back on track.
“But I tried to put things in front of my eyes. I learned a lot about what I can bring to the football field. I also learned some new skills that will come in handy when I return to the game.
“I am going to play anywhere on the court to help the team win.”
With the signing of Cunningham, Alouettes now has five experienced recipients in the CFL. See how head coach Khari Jones uses them.
