Former Ticat Terrell Sinkfield signs with Lions

The B.C. Lions have signed international receiver Terrell Sinkfield.

The 25-year-old spent parts of the last two seasons with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats before inking a contract with the NFL’s Minnesota Vikings in January.

But the club cut Sinkfield from its training camp roster on Aug. 30, paving the way for his return to the CFL.

“Terrell is an experienced and seasoned receiver who brings both skill and depth to our offence,” Lions head coach and general manager Wally Buono said in a release. “He has excellent speed, which is critical to our game and he can also be a key contributor on special teams.”

The native of Minnetonka, Minn., split time between the Toronto Argonauts and Tiger-Cats in 2014 before catching 69 passes for 1,030 yards and six touchdowns for Hamilton in 2015.

The University of Northern Iowa product, who ran a blazing 4.19 seconds in the 40-yard dash at the 2013 NFL combine, joins a balanced Lions receiving corps led by Bryan Burnham’s 47 catches for 848 yards and two TDs.

B.C. also announced Monday that international defensive back Jeremy Harris has been added to the practice roster.

Coming off a bye week, the Lions (8-3) visit the Edmonton Eskimos (5-7) on Friday in a key West Division matchup.
