Acquired:
T.J was signed by the Lions following an impressive free agent camp showing in Seattle in May 2014. He re-signed with the club in February 2017 and inked a one-year extension prior to the 2018 season.

 

Highlights:
6 TJ Lee 052017: T.J. appeared in 15 games recording a team-high four interceptions along with 49 defensive tackles, 10 pass knockdowns and a special teams stop. He managed to bounce back from a dislocated elbow injury suffered against Edmonton on July 28, missing just three starts before returning to the lineup on August 26. His most notable performance of the season came in Winnipeg on October 28 where he hauled in a pair of interceptions.

 

2016: Set for another productive season, T.J. started the first four games of the regular season at defensive halfback recording 15 tackles, one sack and four pass knockdowns before suffering a season-ending injury in Regina on July 16.

 

2015: TJ started at defensive halfback in all 17 of his regular season appearances. His 82 tackles ranked second only to Adam Bighill as did his four interceptions which trailed only Ryan Phillips. TJ also added three sacks, three tackles for a loss and five pass knockdowns on the year.

 

2014: Another great find for the Lions, T.J. appeared in eight regular season games and was a starter in seven of them recording 24 defensive tackles. He picked up his first pro interception on Oct 11/14 versus Ottawa to go along with two pass knockdowns, one tackle for a loss and a pair of forced fumbles on the year.

 

IMG_0702College:
2010-2013: T.J. appeared in 49 career games at Eastern Washington notching 182 tackles four interceptions and seven forced fumbles. The Seattle native was a three-time All Big-Sky selection as well was an NFLPA Collegiate Bowl selection following his senior season in 2013.

 

 

Personal:
T.J. majored in Sociology at Eastern Washington University where he set the school record for most forced fumbles playing alongside current Calgary Stampeders pivot Bo Levi Mitchell. He was just six years old when he began playing football. T.J. is still a kid at heart and counts The Lion King 2 as his favourite movie. He says his most memorable football moment to date is winning the D-1AA National Championship.
