Foley Signs with Roughriders

CFL.ca Staff

REGINA -- Last year’s Most Valuable Canadian in the Grey Cup game is on the move after three seasons in Toronto, signing a contract with the Saskatchewan Roughriders.

Ricky Foley, who became a free agent Friday, is coming off 35-tackle, 3-sack season with the Argonauts and played a prominent role in helping them capture the 100th Grey Cup in his hometown.

The York University product is an eight-year CFL veteran, spending his first four seasons in BC helping the Lions win the 2006 Grey Cup.  He goes to the Riders with 197 career defensive tackles, 54 special teams tackles and 30 quarterback sacks.  He also has seven career fumble recoveries including one in the aforementioned championship game at Rogers Centre last year.

For a Canadian, he's got awesome tattoos. Both Foley and Kuale contributed to last year's Argo (just a minute i think i may choke saying it) Championship. Sorry,almost upchucked there. So who's playing D for them this year?

This year's roster is adding up to be a great one. Can't wait to watch the GC victory laps at Mosiac stadium this year! Do I hear some worry in some of those voices out there about what the RIder's will be bringing this year?! Nay-sayers beware! Bring on the 2013 season!

Too bad the RRs hadn't re-signed Odell Willis. Then they could have had a hot dog on each end of the D-line. LOL LOL

I think he can be an asset... or maybe half an asset... if you know what I mean.

It's the Jim Popp Method - sign 100, and cut 60 loose. Ijiro Kuale may be the "keeper" here. How you liking the Als D Roster so far, A.R.?

could the riders make it 2 home teams in a row that win the cup, theres a definite chance in the air

Duh - the Argos already did that by winning the GC at home in 2012 (BC @ BC in 2011). I suggest like ALL teams, you play a few games with your "new and improved" team before making any GC predictions!

well everybody knows MVC in the GC is not really a big award for outstanding play BUT more for flash rather then dash which foley certainly has!! well the green certainly have acquired some characters this off season BUT the regular season having characters may indeed put a halt to any GC victory laps at taylor field!!

wait till kuale splits the als locker room and drives that coach(whoever he is) nuts, then we'll talk about characters..ahaaa
