The British Columbia Lions acquired a veteran quarterback on draft night.

The Lions traded their fifth overall pick in the 2014 CFL Draft to the Ottawa Redblacks for QB Kevin Glenn.

"Kevin gives us immediate experience at the quarterback position behind Travis Lulay," said VP of football operations and GM Wally Buono in a release. "He's a proven winner, a great locker room guy and he'll make us better."

The 13-year veteran had spent the last two seasons with the Calgary Stampeders before being selected by Ottawa in the CFL Expansion Draft.

The Redblacks acquired Henry Burris from the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in the offseason, making Glenn expendable.

Glenn has also played with Hamilton, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Saskatchewan Roughriders in his career.

The 34-year-old threw for 2, 710 yards, including 18 touchdowns and seven interceptions last year with Calgary.
