Angus was originally drafted by the Toronto Argonauts fourth overall in the 2001 CFL Draft. He was released by the Argos after his initial training camp and was signed by Montreal in July 2001.
In July that year, he was traded to BC by the Alouettes along with a fifth round pick in exchange for defensive lineman Adriano Belli.
2012: Angus enjoyed another fine season at centre, dressing for all 18 regular season games as well as the Western Final. His steady play earned him his third West Division All-Star berth as part of an offensive line that allowed a league-best 30 sacks.
He reached the 200 games-played mark on the final week of the regular season, 197 of which have come in a Lions uniform tying him Jim Young for sixth all-time in club history.
2011: In his 11th year in the CFL, Angus posted his finest season, achieving CFL All-Star status for the first time. Anchoring the offensive line at starting centre as he has done throughout most of his career, he played in all 18 regular season games as well as the Western Final and Grey Cup games.
Behind Reid’s O-line, the club reduced their sacks allowed total from 65 in 2010 (last in the CFL) to just 29 in 2011 to lead the league. He was one of nine BC players to start every game in 2011.

2001-2012: Angus was drafted by Toronto fourth overall in the 2001 CFL Draft and released by the Argos after his initial training camp. He was signed by Montreal in July 2001 and traded later that season to the Lions. Anchoring the offensive line at the centre spot, this Richmond, BC product has spent virtually his entire football career in the Lower Mainland with the exception of the brief stints with Toronto and Montreal.
Angus has been the club’s starting centre for nine straight seasons now which has also included 11 playoff games and three Grey Cups. From 2002 to 2008, Angus played in 142 consecutive games, the streak ending due to a broken foot on Oct 24/09.
After a brief stint as the team's sixth offensive lineman, Angus returned to the starting centre spot midway through the 2010 campaign and now enters his 13th season for the Lions, tying him for fifth all-time.
