MONTREAL -- The Alouettes announced on Thursday that import cornerback Billy Parker has agreed to a new two-year deal with the club.
Parker is coming off a career season in 2013, having been named a CFL East Division All-Star after helping the Alouettes defence lead the league in the majority of its defensive categories.
"Billy is a true leader, both on the field and in the locker room. A voice of wisdom, he offers an intelligent perspective to the game. He is Mr. Consistent,"
"He has always made his biggest plays in the biggest games. Billy offers our team a player-type coach on the field, with a calming approach."
Last year the 32-year-old racked up a personal best 57 defensive tackles -- good for third among Alouettes -- while also batting down five passes, forcing a fumble, and recording an interception.
Parker, a native of Mechanicsville, VA has played five seasons in the CFL, all with the Alouettes, amassing 241 defensive tackles over that span, in addition to nine interceptions and a pair of back-to-back Grey Cup championships in 2009 and 2010.
