The BC Lions have signed free agent Canadian linebacker Adam Konar to a contract, according to TSN CFL analyst Davis Sanchez.

The 25-year-old was released by his former team in the Edmonton Eskimos on Saturday.

Konar recorded 21 tackles, one sack and one interception over 11 games with the Eskimos in 2018, his fourth season with the club.

The Vancouver native was originally selected by Edmonton in the third round of the 2015 CFL Draft.
