Leos Shore Up Defensive Line


The BC Lions Football Club today announced that international free agent defensive linemen Ivan McLennan, Josh Kaddu, and SeVon Pittman have all signed with the team.

McLennan (6’3”, 240) appeared in 11 games for the Montreal Alouettes last year notching 17 defensive stops, a sack and three special teams tackles. The California native who attended Washington State was an undrafted free agent signing of the Atlanta Falcons in 2016 before joining the Als.

Kaddu (6’3”, 245) was a fifth-round selection of Miami Dolphins in the 2012 NFL Draft and dressed in five games over a pair of seasons. After attending training camp with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2014, the University of Oregon standout saw action in one more regular season game with the Minnesota Vikings before being waived the following year.

Pittman (6’3”, 270) joins the Leos after signing as a free agent with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2017. The four-year starter from the University of Akron piled-up 49 solo stops and four sacks during his time with the Zips.

The BC Lions welcome Terrell Owens to Vancouver on Friday, April 6 for the 15th annual Orange Helmet Awards presented by Coast Capital Savings. Click here for more information on the 2018 celebration of amateur football in British Columbia.
