Panthers sign top-five pick — from the CFL Draft

In their ongoing quest for someone who can play offensive tackle, the Panthers have looked north of the border.

The Panthers announced they had signed gigantic Canadian tackle David Foucault, along with punter Jordan Gay.

The 6-foot-8, 320-pound Foucault was chosen fifth overall in the CFL Draft by the Montreal Alouettes. The University of Montreal product attended last weekend’s minicamp on a tryout basis, and they obviously liked what they saw.

The Panthers also released three offensive linemen: Travis Bond, Mike Jasper and Phillipkeith Manley.
