The Edmonton Elks have signed Canadian offensive lineman David Foucault to a two-year contract extension. He is now under contract with the team through 2024.

The six-foot-seven, 323-pound blocker started all 18 games for the Elks this past season, making 17 starts at left guard and one start at left tackle. Edmonton allowed 53 sacks this past season, which ranked eighth in the league, and averaged 5.3 yards per rush, which ranked second in the league.

The native of LaSalle, Que. signed with the Carolina Panthers in 2014 following his U Sports career at the Université de Montréal. He spent three years with the team before stints with the B.C. Lions (2017-2019) and Montreal Alouettes (2021).

Edmonton also released American linebacker Tre Watson, who finished the season on the one-game injured list. He made three starts at middle linebacker this year and recorded 11 defensive tackles.
