Paul Lambert (born November 21, 1975) is a former professional Canadian football offensive guard. He most recently played for the Montreal Alouettes.

Early years[edit]

Lambert lived in Calgary, Alberta for two years, where he attended Mount Royal College. Lambert played in the local football system until university, when he was granted a scholarship to Western Michigan. He started 29 of 44 games at guard, centre, and offensive tackle and was selected for the first-team, All-Mid American Conference as a senior in 2000.

Professional career[edit]

Lambert was drafted in the third round of the 2000 CFL Draft by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and, in the 2001 CFL season, selected as the Tiger-Cats Rookie of the Year, starting in all regular season games and two playoff games.

In February 2003, Lambert signed with the Alouettes. He won the 2009 Grey Cup with Montreal and earned a ring with Montreal when the team won the 2010 Grey Cup while he was on the injured roster.

On January 19, 2011, it was announced that the Alouettes had granted Lambert his request for a release.[1]

Speculation is that Lambert will join the McGill Redmen Football coaching staff. He will join Matthieu Quiviger (ex-Redmen-CFLer)in coaching the offensive line.
