Lions Lock Up Shaq Johnson To One-Year Deal

The BC Lions Football Club today announced that national receiver Shaq Johnson has re-signed with the team for the 2019 season.

Johnson (6’0”, 185) originally joined the Lions as the club’s fourth-round selection in the 2016 CFL Draft (44th overall). The Ontario native started 16 regular season games in 2018, hauling in 28 receptions for 336 yards and three touchdowns. Through three seasons, Shaq has logged 36 regular season appearances recording 58 receptions for 857 yards and five majors.

“We believe that Shaq has another level he can reach that will not only make him a better receiver but pay dividends for our offence,” said GM Ed Hervey.
