Montreal Alouettes come to terms with First-Round pick Geoffrey Cantin-Arku

MONTREAL — The Montreal Alouettes had some good news to announce on Day 2 of their 2024 training camp in Saint-Jérôme. They reached an agreement with Geoffrey Cantin-Arku, who was their first-round pick, ninth overall, in the 2024 CFL Draft.

Team also signed running back Michael Herzog from Hillsdale College, who was their sixth-round pick in 2024. They also signed defensive back Matt Severance from Bentley University who attended Kansas City Chiefs minicamp.

Cantin-Arku (six-foot-three, 240 pounds) spent the last two seasons with Memphis University. In 26 games, he amassed 82 solo tackles, 73 assisted, one interception and four knockdowns.

He played three seasons with Syracuse University from 2019 to 2021. In his last two campaigns at Syracuse, the Levis, Quebec native collected 78 solo tackles and 28 assisted. The 25-year-old added three forced fumbles and one knockdown in 22 games.

He took part in the Miami Dolphins rookie minicamp last week.

“I’m putting my stint with the Miami Dolphins behind me; I’m grateful for the wonderful opportunity I had. I’m extremely excited to join this Alouettes team. I had a good conversation with Danny Maciocia, who has full confidence in me. I’m living out a childhood dream, and I can’t wait to put my new uniform on.”

The Alouettes have also reported on their first two days of training camp, highlighting receiver Cole Spieker‘s performance early on.

Spieker broke training camp as a starter in 2023, but his signature moment occurred in last November’s Grey Cup game when he caught a crucial pass on third-and-five in the dying moments of the game. He also caught a touchdown pass in that contest against Winnipeg.
