January 9, 2018 - Canadian Football League (CFL) - B.C. Lions
(Vancouver) The BC Lions Football Club today announced that national offensive lineman Cody Husband has signed a one-year contract for the 2018 season. Husband would have been eligible to become a free agent in February.
The BC native has spent the previous four seasons with the Lions appearing in 47 games since signing with the club in 2014. Prior to his time with BC, Cody spent a pair of seasons with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.
"Continuity and stability along the offensive line are two critical factors in the success of an offence as a whole," said GM Ed Hervey. "We said early on that improving both sides of the line would be areas of attention and securing Cody for 2018 is significant starting point."
Husband, who made a seamless transition from guard to centre two years ago, has made starts in 35 of the last 36 regular season games and was the club's nominee as Most Outstanding Lineman in 2017.
BC Lions season memberships for 2018 are available now. Season memberships for kids 12 and under start at just $85 all-in. New and renewing season members save as much as 29% on single game tickets while also receiving numerous membership benefits.
