Shawn Lemon is back with the BC Lions.

The Lions acquired the veteran defensive end from the Toronto Argonauts on Monday for defensive tackle Davon Coleman and a conditional 2020 eighth-round draft pick. Both players are Americans.

The six-foot, 250-pound Lemon had 10 sacks in 13 games with B.C. last season. Lemon had 15 tackles and a sack in four contests this year with Toronto, which also dealt Lemon to the Lions in 2018.
