LB Kyries Hebert not feeling the love from Alouettes on Valentine’s Day

Veteran Kyries Hebert sounds a bit like a jilted lover, er, linebacker.

Montreal had told Hebert to speak to other teams about establishing a market value for him to stay with the Als. But the feeling doesn’t seem to be mutual at this point.

Four-time Grey Cup champion Anwar Stewart, who played a number of seasons in Montreal, weighed in.

The 37-year-old Hebert made a career-high 110 tackles, forced three fumbles, made two sacks and intercepted one pass in 18 games last year. He was named an East Division all-star in 2017 and has spent the past six seasons in Montreal.

Hebert has played in 162 career CFL games recording 582 tackles, 145 special teams tackles, 28 sacks, 18 forced fumbles, 12 interceptions and two defensive touchdowns.

  1. Treating the Als more effective players like trash & over paying for washed-up western conference players is the normal modus operandi for Kavis Reed.

    Hebert is easily one of the best pound for pound hitters in the league. Good player with lots left. Seems the Als are looking to go younger. Mr Consequences looking for younger, cheaper, but not necessarily better. Hebert should land somewhere.

    • Oh good lord, this guy just loves himself. Can’t even go through free agency without him trying to make it about him with another year on his contract. This is not what a team player does. When does this guy get cut already,between the stupid head hunting and his never stop tweeting, PLEASE trade this guy and let him harass another team.

      He is 38 years old, if you are really a Riders fan do you think there is a hope in hell that Chris signs him? now Sunderland may, Riders are the wrong colour green. We already have one elder ex-bird, Jovan Johnson, at a much smaller price tag then Hebert. He’ll land somewhere, count on it.

  3. What LB position did Hebert play last season?
    Cats looking for a SAM.

  4. He’s still a great player. Maybe Thorpe will want him in Ottawa

      Popp wants him, he’s been coached to be a pain in the butt when there is maximum media attention

  5. Gee. The Alouettes mistreating and disrespecting players. Quelle Surprise!!!

    • How about Hebert disrespecting the TEAM. If he was a true leader like the players we are seeing across the league welcoming their teams new signings maybe there would be something to talk about but Hebert is singing the same old song ME!ME!ME!

    I would be happy to see a conspiracy among the owners to freeze this guy out of the league. There are guys who play on the edge who manage to avoid kill-shots. Hebert LOOKS for kill shots. With that Awe (sp?) cheap-shot artist gone to the NoFunLeague, Hebert’s departure, would mean the two most dangerous men in the league would be gone!

    No sympathy from me for the guy who pretty much made that dirty clothesline hit on the great Jon Cornish, which lead to his eventual retirement.
    Still… it’s strange to dump a player who had such phenomenal numbers: 110 tackles! He obviously can still play the game. No loyalty in Montreal at all.

      “a player who had such phenomenal numbers: 110 tackles! ”
      Not hard to do when the defense is on the field 50 minutes each game.

  8. If I remember correctly Hebert played weak side linebacker for the
    Ticats and was one of there better players on defence and I was surprised when he was released.

  9. Kavis Reed is truly the CFL’s village idiot..

    • BlackGold58 // February 14, 2018 at 4:30 pm //

      Armchair GM are we? Best of luck with this problem Reed, he needs to learn there is no I in TEAM (and no, DO NOT call HAMILTON!!-send him to BC)

  10. Gee, a player who was paid his roster bonus and has decided to play games in the media. On ANY team in the CFL he would be punted. I believe this is by design, he has someplace to go and they told him they will take him if he is cut. Time will tell, watch closely when he is cut who will be there with open arms!

  11. No difference than Saskatchewan cutting Enoch Muamba
