The B.C. Lions have signed former NFL defensive back Jordan Perryman.

The six-foot, 200-pound defender signed with the Las Vegas Raiders after going unselected in the 2023 NFL Draft. He participated in training camp with the team but was released with an injury settlement just prior to Week 1.

The native of Hanford, Calif. finished his collegiate career at the University of Washington in 2022, recording 37 tackles and one pass breakup over 10 games. He previously played at the University of California, Davis where he made 140 total tackles, 23 pass breakups, four interceptions, two forced fumbles, and two fumble recoveries.

The Lions will open their 2024 regular season on Sunday, June 9 when they visit the Toronto Argonauts at BMO Field.
