One of the league's top offensive lineman could be heading East.
According to TSN's Farhan Lalji, the BC Lions are in trade talks with the Montreal Alouettes to send All-Star offensive tackle Jovan Olafioye to the Als.
Lalji reported the Lions need to shed salary after their free agent spending this offseason, and the next step is now for the Alouettes to negotiate an extension with Olafioye at less money. Olafioye is scheduled to make more than $200 thousand this year, the last of his contract
Olafioye, 29, has spent his entire seven-year career with the Lions. The North Carolina Central product has been named a CFL All-Star the past six seasons, a West Division All-Star the past seven seasons, and took home the league's Most Outstanding Offensive Lineman award in 2012.
