Cibasu caught two passes last season while adding four special-teams tackles. He’s heading into his fourth CFL season — his third with the Als — after being drafted by the Toronto Argonauts in the third round in 2018.

“Régis is a true team player,” general manager Danny Maciocia said. “He accepted to see his role change during the season, all the while devoting himself entirely to the team. He does the small things that aren’t always visible. We know what he brings to the table.”

Cibasu played at Université de Montréal, where he was coached by Maciocia.

The Als also announced the signings of four other import free agents, agreeing to terms with linebackers Jaylan Alexander and Bryce Notree, defensive-lineman Natrez Patrick and defensive-back Jeremy Webb.

Alexander, a 6-foot-1, 240-pounder, took part in the Chicago Bears’ mini-camp last season. Webb, 6-foot-4 and 205 pounds, attended mini-camp with the New Orleans Saints, while Notree, 6-foot-3 and 225 pounds, attended training camp with the Washington Commanders last season.
