“We are not changing a recipe for success” – Régis Cibasu

Quebecer Régis Cibasu will play a fourth season with the Montreal Alouettes.

On Tuesday, the reigning Canadian Football League (CFL) champions announced that their “Swiss Army Knife” has signed a one-year contract extension.

“We are not changing any recipe for success,” emphasized Cibasu in a telephone interview.

The Pointe-Saint-Charles native plays fullback and pass receiver and also plays an important role on special teams.

“Régis has been with us for several years and has demonstrated his versatility to help the team over time,” Alouettes general manager Danny Maciocia said in a press release. In 2023, he always made sure he did his job right. He deserves this vote of confidence.”

Shadow workers

With the exception of his first career touchdown, on a 37-yard pass on August 5, it is very rare to see Cibasu's work in highlights.

Last year he caught seven balls for 101 yards. He was particularly notable for his talents as a blocker on offense and as a craftsman on special teams. He made six tackles and recovered a fumble.

“I am someone who has always been very versatile. In college and at CEGEP I was primarily a receiver, but when I was younger I also played offensive and defensive lineman as well as linebacker.

“I’ve always been able to play anywhere,” added the Université de Montréal Carabins product. I really like it and it allows me to play another year in the CFL.”

10 out of 23

With the signing of Cibasu, Maciocia has now repatriated 10 of the 23 players from the 2023 Champion Edition who could have benefited from their autonomy on February 13th. The CEO of the Alouettes will not keep all of these footballers, but he has already solved the vast majority of the most important cases.

“It's nice to see the brothers with whom you went to war come back and with whom you managed to bring a trophy back to Montreal,” Cibasu said. Danny brought back guys who were good for the team, not only on the field but also in the locker room. It's something special. We can’t wait to conquer the Gray Cup again!”
