REDBLACKS SIGN SHAWN LEMON
The highly-sought veteran of three CFL seasons arrives in Ottawa after recent appearances with the Pittsburgh Steelers and San Francisco 49ers of the National Football League.
Lemon had an outstanding season with the Grey Cup-champion Calgary Stampeders in 2014, starting 18 games and totalling 13 sacks, 31 tackles, five tackles for losses and five forced fumbles.
In another roster transaction today, the REDBLACKS transferred international defensive lineman Aston Whiteside to the six-game disabled list.
The REDBLACKS return to the practice field this week following a bye and will be back to game action on Sunday, September 13 against the BC Lions in Vancouver.
After another road game in Regina against the Saskatchewan Roughriders on September 19, the REDBLACKS will be back at TD Place for the next home game on Saturday, September 26 against East Division-rival Toronto Argonauts.
