MONTREAL — The CFL careers of linebacker Chip Cox and receiver Nik Lewis may not be over.

Montreal Alouettes general manager Kavis Reed told members of the media during the team’s season preview call on Monday that the pair hasn’t decided if they will retire from the league.

“We’re in constant communication with those two,” said Reed. “They have yet to fully make their decision (to retire). We expect that something with be forthcoming very shortly.”

It appeared by the end of the 2017 season that Lewis was set to call an end to his prolific CFL career. So far in his career, the 35-year-old has collected 13,778 receiving yards and 1,051 receptions, going over the 1,000-yard mark in 10 different seasons.

The 34-year-old Cox has played for the Montreal Alouettes since 2006, suiting up in 212 games and amassing 848 tackles, 27 sacks, 23 interceptions, six touchdowns and 25 forced fumbles.
