By The Canadian Press on February 13, 2018.

VANCOUVER – The B.C. Lions bolstered their offensive line by signing free-agent lineman Joel Figueroa on Tuesday.

B.C. announced the one-year deal less than an hour after the noon ET start of free agency.

The six-foot-six, 320-pound Figueroa appeared in 15 games last season with the Edmonton Eskimos.

Figueroa, an American, has played in 44 career CFL regular-season games with Hamilton (2013-15) and Edmonton (2016-17).

B.C. allowed a CFL-high 49 sacks last season.
