The club made the announcement in a press release on Tuesday.
Beaulieu spent the last season in the uniform of the Ottawa Redblacks. In five games with this formation, he was unable to make a tackle.
The Montrealer was drafted by the Edmonton Elks with the 24th overall pick at the Canadian Football League auction in 2018. He played his first two campaigns with the Alberta organization. In 35 career games on the circuit, the 28-year-old has made 12 tackles, including two on defence.
Beaulieu is a product of the Western University Mustangs in Ontario.
In Quebec, he notably made himself known to the general public by participating in the reality show “Occupation double”.
