Alouettes sign veteran quarterback Fajardo in free agency

Cody Fajardo has a new CFL home.

The veteran quarterback signed a two-year deal with the Montreal Alouettes on Tuesday, the first day of CFL free agency. 

The move wasn’t a surprise as former Alouettes quarterback Trevor Harris agreed to a deal last week with the Saskatchewan Roughriders, Fajardo’s former team.

Fajardo, 30, spent the past three seasons with Saskatchewan, leading the Riders to the West Division final in 2019 and ’21.

Fajardo threw for 3,360 yards last season in 17 regular-season games, which he played with a persistent knee ailment. Fajardo had 16 touchdown strikes but also threw a career-high 13 interceptions.

Fajardo also ran for 357 yards and eight TDs in 2022. The Riders allowed a CFL-high 77 sacks last season.
