Paul was originally signed as a free agent by Hamilton in March 1993 but was released and picked up by BC in September 1993. He was subsequently released by the Lions and picked up by Ottawa where he played three games.

Paul was re-signed by BC in 1994 but after being released again was signed by Saskatchewan where he went to play 12 seasons, leaving the club after the 2005 season and signing with the Lions in 2006.

2013:  In his 10th season with the Lions and 21st as a pro, Paul continued his consistent play successfully making 28 of his 33 field goal attempts for an 84.8% mark on the year which was third among CFL kickers. He finished with 137 total points last year which also marked the 17th time in his career that he’s notched 100 points or more in a season.

Sitting fourth overall all-time in kicking points with 2,870, Paul was a remarkable 22-of-23 from inside 40 yards (95.7%) last year while hitting 10-straight attempts in games from Sep 7 through Oct 4. Paul missed the first three games of the 2013 campaign, but played the rest of the way reaching 300 regular season games on Sep 15 vs Montreal. His 117 punts in 2013 which averaged 40.6 yards put him over the 2,000-punt mark for his career. In the Western Semi-Final he made his only field goal attempt stretching his streak to an all-time CFL-record 35-straight.

2012:
  In his 20th CFL season, Paul remained one the league’s premier field goal kickers, recording a CFL-record 10th year at a success rate of 80% or better. He made 44-of-52 FG attempts to rank fourth in the league and his 44 makes were tops among all kickers. Paul’s best streak reached 17 in-a-row over the final six regular season games as well as a five-for-five performance in the Western Final extending his playoff streak to 34-straight.

Paul became the second Lions player to lead the CFL in scoring in consecutive years recording 187 points which matched his second-highest season total. Paul’s longest field goal in 2012 was from 48 yards (Oct. 19/12 vs Edm) and from inside the 40 he was a consistent 31-of-33 while playing all 18 games for 13th time in his career.  

2011:  Paul recorded the finest season for any kicker in the history of the CFL in 2011, setting records for single-season field goal accuracy at 94.3% and for consecutive FGs made with 30 (before missing from 45 yards out on Oct 8/11 vs Calgary). He led the CFL with 203 points (his first 200+ point season), and was named the league’s Most Outstanding Special Teams Player and a CFL All-Star (for the 2nd consecutive year).

He made all 39 FG attempts inside 40 yards and concluded the regular season with a streak of 13 in a row. Paul extended his playoff record to 29 makes in row with a 4-for-4 performance in the 2011 Western Final and capped the year with 16 points and 4-of-5 FGs in the Lions’ Grey Cup win.

Games Played: Career: 307  Playoff: 19  Grey Cup: 3 (1997 w/Saskatchewan, 2006 and 2011 w/BC)

1993-2013:  After rejoining the Lions in 2006, the Grey Cup that season provided Paul with one of his finest moments as a pro as he equaled the record for field goals in a game with six and accounted for 19 of the team’s 25 points.

Paul has never missed a convert in his CFL career (his 758 is a CFL record) and he stands in fourth place all-time with 2,870 points. In 21 seasons, Paul has a lifetime FG% mark of 79.8% (the best in CFL history for kickers with more than 400 attempts) and he has made 86.3% of his field goals in the last eight years while never being below 70% in any season. He is the only kicker in league history with eight consecutive seasons of 80% or better.

Paul also ranks 4th all-time with 651 career field goals, 306 of which have come as a Lion (second in team history). Heading into 2014, Paul’s 307 games rank sixth in CFL history and he is one of just five players to record 20+ CFL seasons.

In Grey Cup play he has made 11-of-12 of his FG attempts for a 92% mark, second all-time, and he is the CFL playoff field goal leader at an 89.8% success rate.
