MONTREAL – Running back Mike Weber Jr., who earned a Super Bowl ring with the Kansas City Chiefs in 2020, was among five American players to sign with the Grey Cup-champion Montreal Alouettes on Friday.

He was a 2019 seventh-round pick of the Cowboys and also spent time in the USFL with the New Jersey Generals.
Montreal also signed running back Marcus Williams Jr., receivers Kameron Brown and Ramaud Chiaokhiao-Bowman and defensive lineman Kivon Bennett.
The six-foot-two, 236-pound Bennett, the son of former NFL linebacker Cornelius Bennett, spent time on the Alouettes practice roster last season.
