MONTREAL (AP) — The Montreal Alouettes signed quarterback Troy Smith to a two-year deal Wednesday.

Smith, 29, won the Heisman Trophy with Ohio State in 2006, leading the Buckeyes to a spot in the BCS national championship game. Smith spent three seasons with the Baltimore Ravens, and was with the San Francisco 49ers in 2010. He played for Omaha in the UFL in 2011.

“We’ve been in discussions for well over three months and have been patiently waiting for Troy to finish his commitments at Ohio State,” Alouettes general manager Jim Popp said. “We’ll have to fast track Troy in order to get him over the learning curve of the CFL and caught up to speed over the next several weeks.

“He’s here to learn and grasp the game for future competition.”
