The B.C. Lions have signed a trio of American players, including defensive back Jaylon McClain-Sapp, defensive back Tre Webb, and kicker Casey Bednarski.

McClain-Sapp played 27 games at Marshall University from 2016 to 2020 where he made 67 total tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss, 16 pass knockdowns, and two interceptions. The native of Jacksonville, Fla. signed with the Kansas City Chiefs after going unselected in the 2021 NFL Draft but was released at the conclusion of training camp.

The five-foot-eleven, 181-pound defender spent this past season with the Pittsburgh Maulers of the USFL and recorded seven tackles and one interception.

Webb played 41 games at San Jose State from 2017 to 2020 and made 210 total tackles, 7.5 tackles for loss, 12 pass knockdowns, two forced fumbles, one interception, and 0.5 sacks. The six-foot-two, 202-pound cover man transferred to Montana State for his final collegiate season in 2021 and was named third-team All-Big Sky after making 70 total tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss, three pass knockdowns, and one interception.

Bednarski spent his collegiate career at College of DuPage and Minnesota State. He was twice named first-team Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC) as a member of the Mavericks, connecting on 40-of-50 career field goal attempts with the club with a long of 63 yards.

The six-foot-one, 215-pound kicker has since been a member of the Green Bay Packers, Chicago Bears, and the Wisconsin Hitmen of the MidStates Football League.

The Lions are scheduled to open rookie mini-camp at Hillside Stadium in Kamloops on Wednesday, May 10.
