The B.C. Lions have signed American offensive lineman Jamar McGloster to a one-year contract for the 2022 season.

The 26-year-old McGloster joins the Leos after suiting up in five games with the Ottawa Redblacks in 2021. He previously spent part of the 2019 season with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

Prior to moving north, the six-foot-seven, 308-pound lineman had NFL practice roster stints with the Detroit Lions, San Francisco 49ers and the Los Angeles Chargers.

The New Jersey native suited up in 30 games at Syracuse University from 2014-2017, starting 24 of those at right tackle.

McGloster made the Atlantic Coast Conference honour roll as a freshman and helped the Orange finish third in the conference in total offence (456.3 yards per game) in 2017.
