BC Lions Sign Three Including Armour

VANCOUVER, BC-In a move to shure up their linebacking core, the BC Lions signed ex-Calgary Stampeder JoJuan Armour. They also added running back AJ Harris and defensive lineman James Edwards.

Armour spent the 04' and 05' seasons with BC and will more than likely bump Javier Glatt to special teams. Armour who was released by Calgary after throwing teammate Jeremaine Copeland to the ground in training camp said that he is "week to week" and won't speculate when he'll play.

Harris spent the 2008 season with Edmonton and had 37 catches for 422 yards for the Eskimos before being released this offseason.

Edwards led the McMaster Marauders in sacks in both 06' and 07' and had one year of eligibility remaining.


  1. Interesting that they signed Armour who was released by Calgary as the bad guy and Stampeder-land still has tension and fights. Are the Lions panicking or was the problem in Calgary all along?

    As a CIS football fan, it's nice to see James Edwards, who was passed over in the draft, get picked up but it will hurt McMaster to lose him as they ready for the start of the season.

  2. I think Armour can only have a good impact on a Lions team who needs help at the linebacker position.
