Jackson signed a two-year deal with the Alouettes on Thursday, Herb Zurkowsky of the Montreal Gazette reports.
Jackson was considered to be the top-ranked player in the 2017 free agent pool, making this a primetime signing for Montreal. The sixth-year wideout was seventh in the league in receiving last season, compiling 88 receptions for 1225 yards and 10 touchdowns. His defining moment of the season, however, was an overtime touchdown catch that won the Grey Cup for his former team, the Ottawa Redblacks. Jackson will look to carry that momentum into the oncoming 2017 season, where he should yet again be one of the top receivers in the CFL.
