Offensive lineman David Foucault signed a two-year contract extension with the Edmonton Elks on Monday.
Released by the Alouettes from Montreal in December 2021, after the only season he spent with the club, the Quebecer bounced back with the Alberta team this year. He was also one of the Elks' starters in their 18 regular season games.
Drafted in 2014 by the “Als”, the 6'8″ colossus first attempted to carve out a job in the NFL, with the Carolina Panthers. He spent three seasons (2014 to 2016) with this organization and played five games in the best football league in the world.
The Université de Montréal Carabins product then made the jump to the Canadian Football League (CFL) with the BC Lions, where Foucault played three campaigns (2017 to 2019).
In addition, the Elks announced that they have released linebacker Tre Watson. The latter had been hired in July, after being released by the Alouettes due to behavioral problems. The American had 11 tackles in three games with Edmonton.
