LIONS SIGN BRYANT TURNER
"Bryant is a veteran defensive tackle who brings a lot of skill, speed and experience to the line,” said GM and head coach Wally Buono. “He’s been an East Division and CFL All-Star in the past and he can play multiple positions, so he’ll bring both competition and depth to our defence for training camp.”
Turner spent the past five seasons (2011-’15) with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers where he notched 89 tackles, 26 sacks and five forced fumbles over 71 regular season games at defensive tackle. He was a CFL All-Star in 2012 and picked up East Division honours in both 2012 and 2013.
“I’m very excited to be joining the Lions,” said Turner from his home in Alabama. “The coaching staff is what really impressed me and I have a ton of respect for guys like Solomon Elimimian and Adam Bighill. It will be great to play with those guys and do my part to help bring the defence up another notch and make a difference.”
BC Lions season tickets for 2016 start at just $250 all-in.
