MONTREAL – Defensive tackle Alan-Michael Cash is returning to the Montreal Alouettes.

The CFL club announced Thursday that it has signed the 30-year-old Cash to a one-year contract.

Cash spent last season with the Toronto Argonauts, where he played only one game due to an injury, after playing his first five CFL campaigns in Montreal.

"He has always performed well on the field, in addition of being extremely appreciated by his teammates in the locker room," general manager Kavis Reed said in a release.

The Alouettes also released Canadian defensive backs Michael Carter and Daryl Townsend, as well as two Americans — linebacker Clemente Casseus and defensive back Terrence Bailey.
