The B.C. Lions have agreed to a two-year contract extension with Canadian offensive lineman Andrew Peirson. He was set to be a free agent in February.

The Kingston, Ont. native is coming off his fourth season with the Lions after signing as a undrafted free agent in 2018. He’s dressed for every Lions game the last two seasons and made two starts at right guard in 2022.

“From both an individual and a team standpoint, we took major steps in 2022 and I can’t wait to get back to camp and continue building toward the ultimate goal,” Peirson said in a statement.

The Lions also signed American defensive lineman Alex McCalister, wide receiver Devin Lucien and defensive back Joshua Flowers.
