London has lofty goals for 2013
The Alouettes have announced the signing of import receiver Brandon London to a new three-year deal with the club.
London was the Alouettes' third-leading receiver last season and posted career-highs in receptions (43), receiving yards (843), and touchdowns (3) despite playing in only 12 games due to injury. The 28-year-old says he has even bigger goals for next year.
“I really set the bar a lot higher for me. The off season is a time where you think about personal goals. Personally I want to clip that thousand yard marker. I was getting so close this year and to have to drop like that at the end of the year, it really hurt me inside. But it’s really been a motivation this off season.”
Former Alouettes coach Marc Trestman left the post this off season to take on the same duties with the Chicago Bears in the NFL. London says one of his first priorities is to touch base with new Als coach Dan Hawkins.
“I wanted to wait until this contract thing was settled. Definitely going to reach out to him, talk to him and get a feel for what type of guy he his and his coaching style and to see what he expects from me.”
