David Foucault contract details with BC Lions

Recently-acquired Canadian offensive lineman David Foucault signed a three-year contract with the BC Lions last Tuesday.

The 28-year-old received a $25,000 signing bonus as part of his 2017 deal that totals $97,000 with $18,000 in possible playtime bonuses. 2018 includes a raise to $117,000 in “hard” money and again $18,000 in available playtime bonuses while 2019 is structured that exact same way.

Lions general manager Wally Buono landed the Canuck blocker by trading six-time CFL all-star American tackle Jovan Olafioye to Montreal.

Foucault was drafted in the first round, fifth overall by the Alouettes during the 2014 CFL draft. He spent 2014 and 2015 with the Carolina Panthers, seeing action in five games and starting one, before he was waived in August 2016.

  1. keep giving us salary info cause nobody else does in the cfl top secret info I guess

  2. Could be money well-spent if he readily re-adjusts to the three-down game. BC’s offence looks to be a beast in the making (speaking of which, where’s Johnny Musso these days)?

    Yes, with the Lions potential O-line dominance this season, Yonus Davis would be breaking records this year if Wally gave him another chance assuming he hasn’t yet landed himself back in prison.

    Yonus Davis is out of jail? there is no way customs will let him across the boarder no way!

    • I should hope Customs would not let Yonus Davis back in to this country! And Wally B is way too experienced to have a convicted drug trafficker on the roster if they did. Maybe Wonderful Jones would take him in Sask.

  5. Wally gave up experience for a young guy plus saved money in the cap no doubt. With a potential ratio advantage on the line it should help the Lions now and in the future. Buono is a sly old fox in doing deals like this one.

    So Foucault got less than what the Alouettes offered him (90K$), but 25K$ signing bonus, which he didn’t have from the Alouettes. Rest is future, which of course isn’t guaranteed. Foucault will learn soon enough how much of his paycheck he’ll leave behind to live in Vancouver area. Compared to Montréal’s cost of living, his deal is a downgrade, no matter how much it may look like an upgrade.
