The Montreal Alouettes will have a particular NFL flair in training camp this season as they welcome veteran receiver Chad Johnson and former Heisman Trophy winning quarterback and former Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers quarterback Troy Smith.

They aren’t the only high-profile or notable players on the roster that college football and NFL fans would recognize, but they certainly will have attract a new audience to the Alouettes that would otherwise not pay much attention to the Canadian Football League and the franchise that was previously coached by current Chicago Bear head coach Marc Trestman.

The duo showed their charisma during a recent photo shoot at TSN’s annual power pose the campus of Bishop’s University.

Here is a sampling of some of the best photos from their photo shoot. You can see the complete collection of photos from Alouettes de Montréal / Rogerio Barbosa here.
