The half defensive Carabins of the Université de Montréal Marc-Antoine Dequoy has signed a contract with the Green Bay Packers on Saturday.
Ignored by the 32 courses during the draft 2020 of the NFL, the Quebec signed the agreement a few moments after the end of the annual auction.
He thus became the first representative of the Blue to sign a contract with a team in the circuit Goodell during the weekend of the draft. The offensive lineman David Foucault was agreed to with the Carolina Panthers in 2014, but only after being evaluated by the team during a trial.
To return to Dequoy, the native of Île-Bizard has made 94 tackles and 11 interceptions, including four for touchdowns, in four seasons with the Carabins.
The athlete 25-year-old had held a “Pro Day” on the 9th of last march when the Chicago Bears and the Philadelphia Eagles had sent a recruiter.
