VANCOUVER — The B.C. Lions bolstered their offensive line by signing free-agent linemen Joel Figueroa and Jeremy Lewis on Tuesday.

The six-foot-six, 320-pound Figueroa appeared in 15 games last season with the Edmonton Eskimos.

Figueroa, an American, has played in 44 career CFL regular-season games with Hamilton (2013-15) and Edmonton (2016-17).

The six-foot-four, 310-pound Lewis is a four-year CFL veteran who spent last season with the Montreal Alouettes.

B.C. allowed a CFL-high 49 sacks last year.

The Lions also signed line backer Mitch Barnett and defensive back Dominique Termansen for 2018 contracts.

Barnett has appeared in 29 games after being drafted in 2016, and Termansen was signed as a free agent by the Montreal Alouettes in 2016 and has 27 games under his belt.

The move brings the two players to their hometown club.
