TORONTO — The Toronto Argonauts announced today that the team has signed international defensive tackle Alan-Michael Cash.

Cash enters his sixth CFL season in 2017 after spending the last five seasons with the Montreal Alouettes. In 82 regular season games with the Als, the 2014 East Division All-Star notched 138 defensive tackles, 17 sacks, three forced fumbles and two interceptions.

The 6-2, 292-pound, native of Richmond, Virginia, spent his collegiate career at NC State where he registered 149 tackles (70 solo, 79 assisted), 19.5 tackles for a loss, nine sacks, one interception and two forced fumbles in 54 games over four seasons with the Wolfpack.

The Argos have also signed international offensive lineman Ryan Mack.

He most recently spent 2016 training camp with the Dallas Cowboys.
