Roughriders sign free agent Foley

  • Print

REGINA -- The Saskatchewan Roughriders have signed free-agent defensive lineman Ricky Foley, the most valuable Canadian of the 2012 Grey Cup.

Foley appeared in 18 regular-season games with Toronto last season, recording 35 defensive tackles, five special-team tackles and three sacks.

The 30-year-old had three tackles and a sack in two playoff games before helping lead the Argonauts to victory in the historic 100th Grey Cup game last November at Rogers Centre. The former York University star had four tackles, one sack and fumble recovery in Toronto's 35-22 victory over the Calgary Stampeders.

The native of Courtice, Ont., was originally drafted fourth overall by the B.C. Lions in the 2006 Canadian Draft after playing three seasons at York.

Foley appeared in 70 regular-season games over three seasons with the Lions, winning his first Grey Cup in 2006. He was named the league's outstanding Canadian in 2009.
