So Long Ty Long

Ty Long BC Lions

The BC Lions Football Club announced that placekicker and punter Ty Long has been released in order to allow him to sign a contract with an NFL team. Long was eligible to become a free agent in February.

Originally signing with the Lions in 2017, the Georgia native was a two-time CFL All-Star (punter) and was the West Division’s selection as Most Outstanding Special Teams Player this past season. Boasting league-highs in both gross yardage and net punting average, the Alabama-Birmingham grad was also good on 43 of 46 field goal attempts in 2018 and a remarkable seven-for-seven from 50 yards or more.

We thank Ty for his time as Lion and we wish him the best of luck with this welldeserved NFL opportunity,” said GM Ed Hervey.
