MONTREAL - The Alouettes announced on Monday the signings of free agent linebacker and defensive end Ejiro Kuale, as well as defensive back Kendric Burney. The import players were signed to three- and two-year deals, respectively.

The former LSU product played three seasons with the Boatmen after joining the club as a free agent in 2010 and registered 110 total tackles (92 DT, 18, ST).

A linebacker, which saw time at defensive end, Kuale was also used sparingly as a full back and tight end in short yardage situations.  He dressed in 48 regular season games and four playoff games including the 100th Grey Cup in November when the Argonauts defeated the Stampeders.

Burney was signed as a rookie free agent by the Carolina Panthers in 2011. The former product of the University of North Carolina recorded one defensive tackle and three pass deflections in his NFL pre-season debut against the New York Giants. Last season, the Jacksonville, NC native was signed by the St. Louis Rams, spending time on the club’s practice squad.

Prior to going pro, Burney was a four-year starter with the Tar Heels, playing in 44 games and racking up 210 tackles, two sacks, 11 interceptions, 25 passes defended and one fumble recovery.

Kuale is an angry player. He can be good or bad for you depending if you work with him or not.

What these stats they're posting don't show is all the penalty yards these players rack up. I know Kuale is def one of the players guilty of a lot, so expect that.

It's like that old saying ... ''If your Middle Linebacker is not half a bubble off of centre, then you don't have a Middle Linebacker''.

Mike, Sam & Will cannot be gentlemen or role models =)

I'll be a witness, A.R. - 50 years ago, I was an undersized LB and my coconut is definitely a little cracked. I think that's how I got the nickname, but I can't remember.
