VANCOUVER – Receiver DeVier Posey, the MVP of last year’s Grey Cup game, signed Monday with the B.C. Lions.
Posey joins the Lions after being released by the NFL’s Baltimore Ravens.
Posey was named the Grey Cup MVP after registering seven catches for 175 yards and a TD in the Toronto Argonauts’ 27-24 win over the Calgary Stampeders. Posey’s touchdown came on a league-record 100-yard reception.
Posey certainly fills a need for B.C., as veteran receiver Manny Arceneaux is out with a knee injury.
"DeVier will definitely help our offence heading into a very critical part of our schedule," GM Ed Hervey said in a statement. "He’s demonstrated the ability to make game-changing plays and he will be a significant addition to the talented group of receivers we have now."
Posey was a 2012 third-round pick of the Houston Texans. He appeared in 26 games over three seasons, registering 22 catches for 272 yards before being traded to the New York Jets in 2015.
