The B.C. Lions have signed Canadian running back Wayne Moore, per sources.

The McMaster product dressed for 25 games with B.C. over the 2018 and 2019 seasons, recording 19 carries for 86 yards, seven receptions for 91 yards, and 15 special teams tackles.

The 30-year-old signed a contract extension with the Lions in December 2020 but was placed on the retired list after being involved in a car accident. He is now fully healthy and ready to resume his professional career.

Moore was selected in the second round of the 2016 CFL Draft by the Montreal Alouettes. He was cut in July 2017 and signed with the Ottawa Redblacks, though he did not dress for a regular season game with the club.
