James Wilder
Running BackRB
Signs with Montreal

January 30, 2020
Wilder has put pen to paper on a contract with the Alouettes, Justin Dunk of Sportsnet.ca reports.
ANALYSIS
After playing for a Toronto team that ranked last in the league in rushing attempts last season, Wilder joins a Montreal squad that was third at 21.7 attempts per game. While the team leader in rushing last season, William Stanback, is no longer in the fold as he pursues NFL opportunities, Jeremiah Johnson is set to come back and will likely factor into the backfield mix as well. Wilder was held out of portions of the 2019 season as the Blue Bombers attempted to trade him before he was ultimately released by the club in late November. Wilder finished in the top six in rushing yards in the two years prior to 2019, so look for him to see significant run now that he's found a new home.
