Lions Add Four Internationals To Secondary

The BC Lions Football Club today announced that international free agent defensive backs Winston Rose, Michael Lee, Bryce Cheek and Ronald Tyler have all signed with the team.

Rose (6’0”, 175) brings two years of CFL experience to the Lions after appearing in four games for the Ottawa RedBlacks last year notching 21 tackles and spending time on the practice roster of the Toronto Argonauts in 2016. The New Mexico State grad was an undrafted free agent signing of the Los Angeles Rams in 2016 and also saw action in the preseason with the Indianapolis Colts.

Tyler (6’0”, 180) attended Nicholls State University and was originally signed by the Montreal Alouettes last May. He attended training camp with the club and was waived as part of the team’s final roster cut down.

Lee (6’0”, 175) enjoyed two standout seasons at Fort Valley State before joining the Atlanta Falcons in 2015 as an undrafted free agent and eventually ended up with the Philadelphia Eagles. He spent the 2016 season on the practice roster of the Los Angeles Chargers before inking with the Leos.

Cheek (6’0”, 195) was a four-year contributor at the University of Akron who had signed a free agent deal with the Kansas City Chiefs in 2016 and also attended training camp with the club seeing action in three games.
