Lions extend two Canadians in the trenches, Steward and Forde

B.C. has locked up two Canucks, according to TSN reporter Farhan Lalji.

Forde us coming off his best season in the CFL playing all 18 games making eight tackles, forcing two fumbles and recording one sack. He’s developed into a reliable Canadian on the defensive line.

Steward played 16 games in 2017. In total, he’s suited up in 44 for the Lions since being drafted in the first round, sixth overall. That’s a key Canadian secured on the offensive lineman.
