MONTREAL — The Montreal Alouettes have parted ways with quarterback Jonathan Crompton, the team announced Tuesday.

Crompton, a 6-foot-4, 225-pound quarterback out of Tennessee, spent three seasons with the Als after originally entering the league with the Eskimos in 2013.

The 29-year-old has played 15 games with the Als since his arrival in 2014, completing 200 of his 360 passes for 2,811 yards and 14 touchdown passes. He won nine of his 13 starts for the Als, including eight in 2014 when he took the Alouettes to the playoffs despite their 1-7 start.

“We thank Jonathan for all that he has done for this team,” said General Manager Kavis Reed. “Even though he was injured through most of the last two seasons, he always kept a positive attitude, while maintaining an excellent work ethic.”
