CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Montreal Alouettes first-round pick of the CFL draft is going to start his football career south of the border. Former Montreal Carabins offensive tackle David Foucault has signed a contract with the NFLs Carolina Panthers after impressing at the teams rookie minicamp. The Panthers officially announced the signing on Twitter on Monday. Foucault was drafted fifth overall by the Alouettes last Tuesday, but the towering six-foot-seven, 320-pound offensive lineman has drawn considerable interest in the United States due to his size and athleticism. Foucault, who was undrafted at the NFL draft earlier this month, is the second player from the Quebec university system to agree with an NFL team this off-season. Offensive lineman Laurent Duvernay-Tardif agreed to a deal with the Kansas City Chiefs after being selected in the sixth round of the NFL draft. Jonathan Isaac Jersey .com) - Cincinnati Reds pitcher Mat Latos had an arthroscopic procedure performed on his right elbow last week, the teams official site reported Wednesday. Bismack Biyombo Jersey . While Chelsea stayed two points behind leader Arsenal courtesy of Etoos hat trick, seventh-place United slipped 14 points from the summit this weekend. And the gap from the Champions League places is growing as well, with Liverpool six points ahead in fourth. http://www.magicauthenticshop.com/Authentic-Penny-Hardaway-Magic-Jersey/. Ending a nine-game losing streak? That gave the Milwaukee Bucks veteran forward a reason to smile. Nikola Vucevic Jersey .J. -- Omar Cummings helped the Houston Dynamo advance to the MLS Eastern Conference finals. Jason Williams Jersey . According to Tony Barrett of The Times, the Liverpool captain is set to announce that he will leave the club at the end of the 2014-15 season.MONTREAL -- Quarterback legend Anthony Calvillo says he is leaning toward retiring. The Canadian Football Leagues all-time passing leader said he has not made a final decision, but he will discuss his future with Montreal Alouettes owner Bob Wetenhall on the weekend. It is highly possible his 20-year career is over. "Im favouring retiring, thats for sure," Calvillo said Monday as the Alouettes went through the season-ending ritual of cleaning out their lockers after their 19-16 overtime loss to Hamilton in the East semifinal. "Thats the way Ive been looking at things." The 41-year-old has not played since August when he suffered a concussion after a routine hit in the backfield in a game against Saskatchewan. He said the concussion symptoms, mainly a feeling of pressure in his head, have still not gone away completely. "The fact that the concussion has kept me off the field for so many weeks is concerning, but the biggest thing is that Im still not 100 per cent," he said. "Thats what bugs me the most. "Now that (the season) is over, I want to step away from football and make sure I really and truly make the right decision, but I am favouring not playing." Calvillo has been making the decision on whether to continue from year to year in recent seasons after consulting with his family and Wetenhall. This year it is tougher, because he wants to keep playing but has a strong feeling that he probably shouldnt. "Of course I want to play, but physically can I keep doing it?" he said. " Thats what I have to ask myself. "The scary part is that feel Im not fully healed yet from all the symptoms and I know my threshold has gone downn for taking a hit.dddddddddddd Ive learned a lot more about concussions and thats what scares me the most because it wasnt a hard hit. Its a hit Ive taken many times before." If he retires, he is looking at going into coaching, but he also wants at least one summer off to spend with his family. And if he coaches, the Los Angeles native wants it to be in Montreal. "This is my home, this is where I want to be, this is where I want to raise my kids," he said. "So my first objective is to get healthy and try to stay here in Montreal." He said the desire to coach grew this season when he was unable to play but spent time in team meetings and talking to teammates in the locker-room. He watched three quartrerbacks prospects, Josh Neiswander, Tanner Marsh and Troy Smith, take turns being the starter. Smith, the 2006 Heisman Trophy winner, looks poised to take over next season if Calvillo opts to retire. "I was trying to help out as much as I can while I was hurt and that excited me being there to help an individual grow up and be a success," Calvillo said. "So coaching has definitely gone higher up in my list." Calvillo broke into the CFL with the defunct Las Vegas Posse and then spent three seasons with Hamilton before joining the Alouettes as Tracy Hams understudy in 1998. He took over as the starter in 2000. The five-time CFL all-star won three Grey Cups and was named the CFLs Outstanding player three times. He holds league records of 79,816 passing yards, 455 touchdown passes, 5,892 completions and 9,437 pass attempts. He also holds the single game completions mark with 44, and leads in career Grey Cup passing yards with 2,470.
