Calvillo Re-signs with AlouettesPosted by at 3:40 pm
Montreal Alouette quarterback, Anthony Calvillo, has re-signed with the club, inking a new two year deal that will finish his career in Montreal.
Calvillo, 38, just completed his 18th season in the CFL, his 14th with the Alouettes. Last month, Calvillo underwent surgery to remove his thyroid gland and just this past week completed his radiation therapy.
“After undergoing treatment, I feel great and my doctors are very satisfied with my progress thus far,” Calvillo said. “After taking time to look after my personal health, I’m extremely excited to start preparing for another season of football with the Alouettes. I’ll start my training regiments on Monday, which is the usual starting date for my off-season training.”
Last season with the Alouettes, Calvillio threw for 4,358 yards and 32 touchdowns with just 7 interceptions and led Montreal to their second consecutive Grey Cup championship. He was due to become a free agent February 16th.
“The most important information about this announcement today is that Anthony’s prognosis looks great and he is feeling great,” general manager Jim Popp said. “The secondary news is that Anthony has signed on to play at least another season. The Alouettes family is ecstatic about all the news.”
