OTTAWA — The Ottawa REDBLACKS have signed free agent Canadian linebacker Nicolas Boulay to a one-year deal, the club announced Wednesday.

Boulay, who is from Magog, Que. and went to school at Sherbrooke has spent all six seasons of his CFL career with the Montreal Alouettes. In 97 career games, the 6-foot, 220-pound 29-year-old has 69 special teams tackles, 33 defensive tackles and a forced fumble.

After a quiet opening day of free agency, GM Marcel Desjardins has added a handful of free agents on Day 2, signing Philippe Gagnon, Troy Stoudermire and Ryan Lankford to the mix.
