Calvillo Coming Back

From Montreal Alouettes

Quarterback Anthony Calvillo announced on Monday that he will be returning for another season with the Alouettes in 2012. Following his brilliant, record-breaking season, the veteran quarterback will be back under centre for his 15th season with the team.

"I'm very excited to come back and be a part of this great team and organization," said Calvillo. "We had a solid team last season and I know that we will be competitive yet again with the level talent on our roster."

In 2011, Calvillo led the league in passing yards (5,251) and touchdown passes (32), while throwing only eight interceptions - the lowest among CFL starters.

"Last season was a special one for me and I'm really looking forward to rejoining my teammates and working towards winning another Grey Cup," said the 39-year-old quarterback.

Calvillo made history on three separate occasions in 2011, becoming the CFL's all-time touchdown and completions leader before being crowned pro football's all-time leading passer.

The CFL version of Brett Favre...doesn't know when to retire? Give the youngsters a chance to play.

Doesn't know when? How about when he's not still one of the top two qb's in the league? Yeah, I'm sure the Als are really itching to turn the reins over to Adrian friggin' McPherson.
