VANCOUER, B.C. — The B.C. Lions and offensive lineman Brett Boyko agreed to a two-year contract on Wednesday.

Boyko was the Lions’ second-round selection (14th overall) in the 2015 CFL Draft.

The Saskatoon native and the UNLV grad has spent time with the NFL’s Philadelphia Eagles and San Diego Chargers along with the San Diego Fleet of the now-defunct AAF.

"Good things come to those who wait and Brett has very definitely been worth the wait," said GM Ed Hervey in a statement. "If he had been in this year’s draft, there isn’t a team that wouldn’t have taken him first overall, so we’re very happy to be adding him in time for camp and even more pleased that he has committed to this length of contract."

The Lions begin training camp in Kamloops on Sunday.
