The BC Lions Football Club announced today that quarterback Mike Reilly has been signed to the team’s practice roster.
Reilly comes to the Lions after recently being waived by the Seattle Seahawks in May. Originally, he signed with Pittsburgh as a free agent following the 2009 NFL Draft but was waived in September last year. He signed with Green Bay and St. Louis in months to follow before eventually winding up in Seattle.
In college, the Kennewick, Washington native transferred to Central Washington from Washington State after the 2004 season and it proved to be a smart move as he finished up his career in 2008 ranked third in Division II history in career passing yardage (12,448) including the 3,706 yards he threw for in his final season to finish as the runner-up for the Harlon Hill Trophy (the Division II Heisman). He holds the NCAA all-divisions record with at least one touchdown pass in all 46 career games and completed 64.1% of his passes during that time including 118 touchdowns during his four years at Central Washington.
The Lions also announced that kick returner Robert Jordan has been released.
