Canadian LB Bo Lokombo accepts 49ers practice roster spot

Canadian linebacker Bo Lokombo has taken a practice roster spot with the San Francisco 49ers.

He made four tackles and defended one pass in four pre-season games with the Baltimore Ravens, but got released earlier this week. Oakland quickly picked him up and after spending time on the Raiders practice roster he was released on October 10. There was a workout with the New England Patriots on October 12 but nothing came of it.

Lokombo signed and attended training camp with the Ravens in 2017 after spending the last three seasons with the B.C. Lions. The 26-year-old was set to become a free agent on February 14 and the team released him early in order to work out for the Ravens on January 19.

“Bo is a talented and exciting player who brought an extra dimension to our defense,” Lions head coach and general manager Wally Buono said at the time. “We wish him the best as he moves forward into the next phase of his career.”

Last season, Lokombo made nine tackles on defence and 11 on special teams for the Lions.

  1. The contracts are richer and with limited body wear and tear he can go on forever!

      Typically NFL Practice rosters max out at 2 years of service. They only allow four players per practice squad to have two accrued seasons. A third year on the practice squad is only allowed if the team keeps 53 players on their active roster at all times
