"Let's talk about expectations. What does Foley bring other than a lot of extraneous u's? He was a CFL rookie at 24 and served as a situational pass rusher his first three seasons with the BC Lions. That is not promising. Foley will be a 28 year old NFL rookie. He is 6'2", 245 according to Wikipedia. So he's 3-4 outside linebacker sized and outside linebacker would seemingly be his best fit in the NFL. Seattle already has this player and his name is Nick Reed and he is glorious. Foley is a bit quicker than Reed and might be able to contribute more on special teams, and barring something legendary in the preseason, special teams is likely how Foley will earn a roster spot. And by legendary, I mean legendary. It would be typical for Foley to play well in the preseason, polished pass rushers typically do, but it wouldn't tell us much about how he will stand up against NFL competition."The Seahawks also signd Alberta grad Patrick McDonald to compete for their long-snapper role, but cut punter Jon Ryan (Regina), so it's been a busy week of CIS-related news with that franchise.
Perhaps more for grins, here is Foley's scouting video from his 2004-05 seasons at York. Remember when Waterloo ran the option and Queen's had those blue home jerseys?
