The Montreal Alouettes where a busy bunch on Friday, signing six import players to their roster.

The Alouettes added defensive back/kick returner Stephan Neville, receiver Felton Huggins, running back Noel Devine, defensive end Michael Montgomery, defensive back Dajuan Morgan, as well as defensive end Duke Lemmens.

All six players agreed to two-year deals with the club.

Neville tied the NCAA Division II record with 11 career kick return touchdowns over his four-years at Stonehill College. He scored four touchdowns on kickoff returns in 2010 and returned 26 kickoffs for 773 yards. As a defensive back, he tallied 164 tackles and 12 interceptions during his college tenure.

Devine played in the United Football League with the Omaha Nighthawks last season. He had previously signed with the Philadelphia Eagles as a free agent. The 23-year-old former West Virginia University rusher had 1,742 all-purpose yards and 14 touchdowns. He ended his four-year college career with 4,315 rushing yards and 29 touchdowns while averaging 5.9 yards per carry.

Huggins spent the entire 2008 and 2009 seasons on the Buffalo Bills' practice squad. The 28-year-old was originally signed by the Jacksonville Jaguars as an undrafted free agent in 2006. He then spent the 2007 season in NFL Europe with the World Bowl runner-up Frankfurt Galaxy.

Montgomery was the Green Bay Packers' sixth round pick at the 2005 NFL Draft and spent the first three years of his career as a backup at defensive end for the Packers. The 28-year-old started eight games for the Packers in 2008. He produced 123 tackles and five sacks in his first 56 games and rejoined the Packers in October 2010 after a short stint with the Minnesota Vikings. He most recently played for the Las Vegas Locomotives of the United Football League.

Morgan was a third round pick of the Kansas City Chiefs in the 2008 NFL Draft. He played two seasons with the Chiefs before joining the Indianapolis Colts in 2010, recording 42 tackles in 30 games during his NFL career. He spent last season as part of the New York Jets practice squad.

Lemmens spent four years at the University of Florida, helping the team win the National championship in 2008. In 45 career games with Gators, including 14 as a starter, he amassed 66 tackles, five sacks, and 9.5 tackles for loss. The 23-year-old attended the Arizona Cardinals training camp last summer.
