Khreem was signed as a free agent in July 2011 and was placed on the club's practice roster.

2014: Another consistent year from the veteran pass-rusher as he led the Lions with 11 sacks along with 45 defensive tackles through 17 regular season appearances. Both his sack and defensive tackle totals were career highs for Khreem to go along with two tackles for a loss, a blocked punt, a fumble recovery and one forced fumble.

Khreem’s performance in Winnipeg on Oct 25/14 stands out among one of the best by a Lion on the year as he terrorized the ‘Bombers offence with four sacks in the second half of a pivotal late season game. The dominant output earned Khreem Defensive Player of the Week kudos and helped secure an 18th consecutive playoff spot for the club with the win.

Khreem continued his fine defensive play starting 17 games in 2013 as a key part of the pass rush and run defence. He finished second on the club with seven sacks which put him in a tie for 14th in the CFL and ranked among the league leaders in tackles by interior linemen with 32 with one added on special teams.

Khreem continued his fine play on the defensive line with 17 starts in the regular season, missing just one game (Oct. 26 at Calgary). He was third on the club and fifth in the CFL with seven sacks while adding 20 tackles. His three forced fumbles led the Lions and tied for third in the league overall.

Khreem had sacks in six different games including a season-high two vs Hamilton on July 6/12.  

2011: Khreem became an important early season addition to the Lions defense in 2011, stepping into the lineup in Week 4 (July 22nd vs Hamilton). He joined the club as a free agent on July 5 and after three weeks on the practice roster, could not be moved out of the lineup the rest of the way.

Khreem made 14 starts in the regular season as well as the Western Final and Grey Cup. He finished fifth on the club with five sacks, adding 27 tackles, three of which were for a loss. He recovered two opponent fumbles and forced two more to create opportunities for the Lions offence.

2011-2014:  Khreem joined the BC Lions as a free agent in July 2011 and has now spent four seasons with the club, recording 30 career sacks with 18 coming in the past two seasons alone. He has started in all 66 of his career games and has been a key member of the CFL’s top defence in that span. Since making his CFL debut in Week 4 of 2011, he’s missed just three regular season games. League in 2009.

1999-2002:  Khreem played two years at Garden City Community College before transferring to Oklahoma State in 2001. Over the span of two seasons with the Cowboys, he had 61 tackles, 14 tackles for a loss and four sacks.
