MONTREAL — Philippe Gagnon is back with the Montreal Alouettes.

The six-foot-four, 311-pound offensive lineman from L'Ancienne-Lorette, Que., signed a one-year deal Thursday with the Alouettes, who drafted Gagnon out of Laval in 2016.

Gagnon appeared in nine games, eight as a starter, last season with the Ottawa Redblacks. Gagnon spent his first three CFL seasons with Montreal after being selected in the first round, second overall, in the '16 Canadian draft.
