Bo knows the NFL.
Canadian linebacker Bo Lokombo has signed with the Baltimore Ravens after spending the last three seasons with the Lions. The 26-year-old was set to become a free agent on Feb. 14 and was released early by B.C.
3DownNation’s Justin Dunk reported that Lokombo worked out for the Ravens on Jan. 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 in a statement. “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.
Lokombo is the first national player – he was born in the Congo but is a Canadian citizen – to sign an NFL deal this season.
