Geoffrey Cantin-Arku Signs First Professional Contract with Montreal Alouettes After NFL Mini-Camp

Geoffrey Cantin-Arku’s NFL experience only lasted the duration of a rookie mini-camp, since he has just signed his first professional contract with the Montreal Alouettes.

The club made the announcement Tuesday, during the second day of its training camp held in Saint-Jérôme.

“I think we’re going to see him at camp, I’d like to say a little more, but I think we’re going to see him,” general manager Danny Maciocia told colleague Benoît Rioux on Monday.

The “Als” made Cantin-Arku their first pick (ninth overall) in the last Canadian Football League (CFL) draft. A few days before the auction, the linebacker was invited by the Miami Dolphins to their rookie mini-camp. That probably explains why he was available for the defending Gray Cup champions’ turn.

“I put the Miami Dolphins adventure behind me, I am grateful for the great opportunity I had,” said Cantin-Arku, whose comments were reported in an Alouettes press release.

“I look forward and I am extremely excited to join the Alouettes team. I had a good conversation with Danny Maciocia who has full confidence in me. I’m making a little boy’s dream come true and I can’t wait to put on my new uniform.”


The Quebecer spent the last two years with the Memphis University Tigers in the NCAA. In 26 games at this level, he amassed 82 solo tackles and 73 assisted tackles, in addition to making one interception.
