MONTREAL - The Montreal Alouettes locked up a pair of defensive players from Windsor, Ont., for the next three years with the signings on Monday of Daryl Townsend and Michael Carter.
Townsend, a 28-year-old safety, was the club's special teams player of the year in 2013 with 16 tackles in 13 games, including four in an Aug. 22 game against B.C. He missed five games for personal reasons.
Carter, a 27-year-old defensive back, played in several positions in the defensive backfield. He dressed for 17 games in 2013, playing mostly in relief of the starters. He had eight defensive tackles and another seven on special teams.
