Lions Sign Brandon Jordan to Extension
(Vancouver) The BC Lions Football Club announced this morning that defensive lineman Brandon Jordan has signed a contract extension with the team.
Jordan appeared in 12 games last season including nine as a starter at defensive tackle. Showing steady improvement during his second season as a pro, Brandon more than doubled his defensive tackles from seven as a rookie in 2012 to19 last season along with four sacks.
"Brandon has developed into a talented interior defensive lineman and I believe his best football is still to come," said VP of football operations and GM Wally Buono.
Taking advantage of increased playing time, Jordan enjoyed a terrific mid-season run in 2013 with three sacks over a two-game span including a pair versus Montreal on September 15.
"Brandon comes to work each day with a willingness to do whatever it takes to improve and contribute to our defence," said head coach Mike Benevides. "He's possesses the ability to be a game-changer in the middle of the defensive line and our expectations of Brandon heading into this season are a reflection of his tremendous growth as a player."
