Cody Hoffman is back with the same CFL team that gave him a chance last year, as the Montreal Alouettes added BYU’s all-time leading receiver to their practice squad Friday.
Hoffman caught six passes for 104 yards and a touchdown in four games for Montreal in 2015. To make room for Hoffman, Montreal released receiver Chandler Jones.
Hoffman was released by the Alouettes in training camp this year after failing a medical exam, according to The Canadian Press.
Hoffman is one of three wide receivers on Montreal’s practice squad, including former NFL receiver Jacoby Ford, who was drafted by the Oakland Raiders in 2010. The Alouettes currently have six wide receivers on their active roster, including former University of Utah quarterback Corbin Louks, and one on the six-game injured list.
Hoffman caught 260 passes for 3,612 yards and 33 touchdowns in his BYU career. He attended training camp with the Washington Redskins in 2014.
