The B.C. Lions have re-signed American defensive back Garry Peters to a one-year deal.

The six-foot, 190-pound Peters had 73 tackles, two interceptions, one sack and a forced fumble in 18 regular-season games last season.

"Garry’s return along with T.J. Lee’s extension and the addition of Aaron Grymes and Josh Woodman gives us a very strong starting point in the secondary," Lions GM Ed Hervey said in a statement. "We still have some work to do but we’re creating a very strong group back there.”
