| No Comments | No TrackBacks
After playing the Pittsburgh Steelers in training camp, UMass alum Brandon London has signed with the Montreal Alouettes of the CFL. The former Giant and Dolphin has been trying to catch on with an NFL team since the season started and has found a home in Canada.

With the injury bug taking a bite out of the Montreal Alouettes the last two weeks, the team announced Wednesday the addition of five more players to its practice roster. The quintet, all imports, includes: defensive tackle Ty Steinkuhler, running back Tracy Ford, wide receiver Brandon London, and kickers-punters Sam Swank and Colt David.

London, a University of Massachusetts alumnus, has spent some time in the NFL with the New York Giants, Miami Dolphins and, most recently, Pittsburgh Steelers. The 25-year-old was released by the Steelers in early September. Appearing in 49 games over four seasons with UMass, the 6-foot-4, 210-pound receiver amassed 2,022 yards on 148 catches. The latter total currently ranks third in the university's record books.
