Canadian defensive back Elie Bouka has signed a reserve/futures contract with the Philadelphia Eagles, per sources.
He was released by the Riders to sign that deal.
Bouka signed with Saskatchewan in 2017 and played four games making three special teams tackles. The Riders drafted the 25-year-old in the third-round, 24th overall in the 2016 CFL draft.
Bouka was initially signed by Arizona as an undrafted NFL free agent in 2016, even though he was on the mend from a torn Achilles which kept him from playing in his final year at the University of Calgary. That’s the only reason why he slid down the CFL draft board.
