The B.C. Lions signed linebacker Solomon Elimimian to a two year contract extension on Saturday.

The club also announced on Saturday that they've re-worked quarterback Kevin Glenn's deal to give their new starter a raise.

Elimimian played 15 of the Lions' 18 regular season games last year, finishing second in defensive tackles with 73 to go along with three sacks and a career-best three interceptions. He recorded four tackles for loss and forced a pair of opponent fumbles leading to turnovers. Elimimian recorded nine games with five or more tackles in 2013 and five games with seven or more defensive stops. A late season injury prevented him from playing in the Western Semifinal.

Glenn threw for 2,710 yards and a career-high 100.5 passer rating last season. He tossed 18 touchdown passes and just seven interceptions in 13 starts leading Calgary to 10-3 record and 14-4 overall. Glenn nine games of 200 or more passing yards and led the Stamps to the West Final vs Saskatchewan.
