The Montreal Alouettes acquired defensive lineman Michael Moore from the Edmonton Elks for offensive lineman Tony Washington and running back Martese Jackson on Friday.

All three players are Americans.

The 6-foot-4, 269-pound Moore appeared in 11 games last season with Edmonton, registering 19 tackles and two sacks. He has appeared in 48 career regular-season games, having accumulated 69 tackles, 17 sacks and a forced fumble.

Washington was set to become a free agent next month but has agreed to a one-year deal with Edmonton. Washington is a 12-year CFL veteran who has dressed for 129 career games with Calgary (2011), Toronto (2012-13), Edmonton (2014-16), Hamilton (2017-18), and Montreal (2018-21).

The 5-foot-6, 171-pound Jackson has spent time in the CFL with Winnipeg (2015), Montreal (2015-16, 2021) and Toronto (2017-18).
