MONTREAL -- The Montreal Alouettes announced on Thursday that they have signed import defensive lineman Jermaine McElveen to a two-year contract.

McElveen spent the first four seasons of his CFL career with the Alouettes from 2008 to 2011, and played on two Grey Cup champion teams with Montreal.

He played the last two years with Saskatchewan, and is the second member of the defending Grey Cup champs to sign with Montreal in as many days, joining linebacker Diamond Ferri, who signed with the Alouettes on Wednesday.

"Jermaine is a character guy. He really cares," explained Alouettes general manager and coach Jim Popp. "He's a versatile defensive lineman who can play inside or outside."
