Two Quebec defensive stars who recently played football south of the border have signed free agency contracts with NFL clubs.

Linebacker Carl-Olivier Prime has signed with the Indianapolis Colts while defensive end Andy Mulumba inked a contract with the Green Bay Packers.


The 6’1, 255 pound defensive end from Laval, Quebec signed a free agent contract with the Colts after the conclusion of the 2013 NFL Draft.  Prime recently played for NCAA FCS (formerly Division 1-AA) team, Wagner Seahawks.  In the 2012 season, the Quebec defensive star was the team’s leading tackler, as he amassed 98 tackles.  In the Northeast Conference, Prime was ranked eight for tackles, averaging 7.4 per game. Due to his exceptional play on the field, he was selected as a Second Team All-NEC performer.

The 6’3, 260 pound defensive lineman from Montreal, Quebec has inked a free agent contract with the Green Bay Packers.  Mulumba suited up for NCAA FBS (Division 1) team, Eastern Michigan Eagles.

In 2011, the Quebec defensive lineman was selected to the Academic All-Mac Team.

Previous to the Eagles, Mulumba enjoyed a successful CEGEP career with the Vieux Montreal Spartiates.  During his time there, he led the team to a Bol D’Or Championship and was awarded Defensive MVP of the game. He was also named a CEGEP Division 1 All-Star and also picked up team Defensive MVP honours.

Recently, the CFL ranked him fifth in the league’s Top 15 Prospects for the 2013 CFL Draft.
