It's official: Rodgers is the latest A louette MONTREAL (CP) Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Rodgers of Nebraska made it official Friday when he signed a three-year contract with Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League, Neither the Alouettes nor lawyer Barry Lang-berg would disclose exact terms of the contract, believed to be. worth $100,000 to the all-America halfback. But Langberg said that he would like to clear up "a few things" concerning the pact, "I never said the contract was in excess of six figures as some reports I've read have indicated," Langberg said. "I also read that the Alouettes would be required to pay a triple penalty if Johnny was cut or traded there is absolutely no provision for this in his contract." Rodgers had been quoted as saying the Als won the battle for his services over the National Football League San Diego Chargers because the latter wanted to use him strictly as a punt return specialist and wide receiver. But the five-foot, nine-inch Rodgers, who weighs 173 pounds, said that was only part of the story. coupon festWTO WILTON MERCURY SALES LTD. 1 Oth and Victoria Ave., Brandon Phone 728-6656 "The people here and the city had more to do with my decision than money. I'd still like to live here even if I wasn't playing football." He said he did not come here because Montreal "was more advantageous to the black athlete," but because he thinks the longer and wider field in Canada "will be to my advantage." Head coach Mary Levy was asked how he expected the remainder of his players to react to the rich contract signed by Rodgers. "I've been asked this several times since negotiations began," Levy said. "The players are elated that we have a man here 96 "WHERE THE Just FEATURING . . .

Rodger's decision to choose the Alouettes over the offer made by the Chargers was announced in Los Angeles Thursday. Rodgers said the San Diego offer "was a very good contract but not as good as the contract offered by Montreal." Sam Berger, owner of the Alouettes said that negotiations with Langberg and Rodgers had been "imicable throughout" and there had been no contentious hassles. "I'm sure that the other clubs in the league will have to treat us with respect this season," Berger said of his 1972 third-place club.
