VANCOUVER — The B.C. Lions have signed American offensive lineman Kent Perkins to a two-year contract extension.
The six-foot-five, 306-pound Dallas native made his debut in Week 2 of the 2021 CFL season and since then has started 16 consecutive games at right tackle.
Perkins was the Lions' nominee for CFL most outstanding lineman last season and has helped the team's offence rack up 1,561 total yards through the first three games of 2022.
Before signing with the Lions ahead of 2021 training camp, Perkins suited up for the XFL’s St. Louis BattleHawks in 2020.
He spent parts of 2017-18 with the NFL's Cincinnati Bengals, where he was twice promoted to the active roster.
