Lions ink free agent offensive lineman Chris Greaves (Vancouver) The BC Lions Football Club today announced that national free agent offensive lineman Chris Greaves has signed a 2018 contract with the team.
Greaves (6'5", 303) enters his ninth CFL season after spending last year in Montreal with the Alouettes. The Western Ontario grad began his playing days with Winnipeg where he was drafted by the Bombers in 2010 (sixth round, 45th overall).

Through eight seasons, he's appeared in 112 regular season games with 76 starts.
