VANCOUVER — Canadian linebacker Bo Lokombo is remaining with the B.C. Lions.
Lokombo signed a two-year extension with B.C. on Thursday. He was slated to become a free agent Feb. 14.
Lokombo is entering his eighth CFL season and seventh with B.C. Last year he had 52 tackles (42 defence, 10 special teams), two sacks and one pass knockdown in 13 regular-season games.
The six-foot-two, 225-pound Lokombo was the CFL's top Canadian in 2021.
"This franchise means so much to me and it’s exciting for me and my family to stay in orange and black," Lokombo said in a statement. "Our linebacker room and entire defence have raised their game to a higher level and we all look forward to making even more plays in 2023."
