The B.C. Lions have signed Canadian linebacker Jordan Herdman-Reed, the team announced on Wednesday.

The six-foot, 235-pound defender was selected by the Lions in the seventh round of the 2017 CFL Draft out of Simon Fraser. He played 52 regular games over three seasons with the team, recording 95 defensive tackles, 44 special teams tackles, three sacks, and one forced fumble.

The Winnipeg native spent the past two seasons with the Saskatchewan Roughriders and recorded one defensive tackle and six special teams tackles in 17 games.

The 28-year-old played at Simon Fraser University over four seasons (2013-16) and was twice named the Great Northwest Conference (GNAC) Defensive Player of the Year, recording 226 total tackles, five knockdowns, three forced fumbles, and an interception in 25 games. He was also the first player in program history to earn an invite to the Senior Bowl.
