Alouettes defensive end John Bowman extends and restructures contract

Alouettes defensive end John Bowman has signed an extension and restructured his contract with Montreal, per sources.

The 34-year-old was scheduled to make around $165,000 in 2017 and become a free agent in 2018, but Bowman has inked a new pact with the Als through the 2018 campaign and sees him get about $150,000 for this year and next.

Montreal’s all-time franchise sack leader played in 18 games last season, registering 28 tackles, 10 sacks and three forced fumbles. Bowman has spent his entire 11-year CFL career in La belle province, playing 182 games and making 339 tackles, 112 sacks with 28 forced fumbles in an Als uniform. He’s had seven sacks or more in every season except for his rookie campaign.

Bowman has been a CFL all-star twice (2010 and 2015) and won two Grey Cups while with Montreal (2009, 2010).

    Sneaky good move

  2. Hmmm, 15K difference. Is this news-worthy?

    • It’s the extension that is newsworthy. If I understood the article he will not be a free agent until the 2019 season.

      • Perhaps – methinks by then ready for retirement (if he even makes it that far). Nevertheless, a great CFLer.
