The Montreal Pikes signed with U.S. guards Monshadrik Hunter and Jermaine Ponder and U.S. offensive linesman Donald Hawkins on Wednesday.
Ponder joined the Alouettes training team in 2019. Before that, he had tried his luck in the NFL with Cleveland Browns, Pittsburgh Steelers and Houston Texans.
In the end, Hawkins was a member of eight NFL teams, but never participated in the game. Recently, he played in the now discontinued American Football League.
The Canadian Football League (CFL) free agent market will open next Tuesday.
