Could Liam Mahoney Be In The Future Plans of The Montreal Alouettes?

According to an earlier report by Herb Zurkowsky of The  Montreal Gazette on the possibility that former Hamilton Tiger-Cats receiver Liam Mahoney potentially trying out with the Montreal Alouettes. Now it seems he could get a workout with the organization.
Mahoney brings many tangibles that you look for in a receiver; a student of the game, a very hard worker, a high football IQ, and solid size.
A former quarterback at Concordia, he has only played the receiver position for a few years so his ceiling is very high to become a more polished player.
Furthermore, Mahoney could play special teams as he did with the Tiger-Cats in the 2011 season. Last year, the Alouettes unit was anemic in trying to shift momentum in their favour.
Moreover, he could provide another non-import player for a receiving core that currently has one returning Canadian in Eric Deslauriers.
If the tryout does come to life and he impresses the coaching staff. It would not be surprising to see Mahoney make the roster and essentially take over the position of Danny Desriveaux who was released earlier in the offseason.
Finally, Mahoney is a local player that could entice more fans to come out to the home games and see a player who proudly represents his community, and city very well.
If Mahoney does catch on with the Alouettes, this could be a solid match for both sides.
