Slotback Nik Lewis signed a one-year contract with the Montreal Alouettes, the CFL club announced Wednesday.

The 33-year-old Lewis, entering his 12th CFL campaign, caught 70 passes for 743 yards and two touchdowns in 17 games for Montreal last season.

"Nik's presence on the field and in the locker room brought a positive influence to our team," general manager and head coach Jim Popp said in a statement. "He quickly was accepted as a leader and was leaned on for advice by many."

Lewis, who won two Grey Cups with the Calgary Stampeders before signing with the Alouettes last season, is 10th in all-time CFL receiving yards with 11,995. He is seventh in career receptions with 875.
