The B.C. Lions have added depth on their defensive line by acquiring Shawn Lemon from the Toronto Argonauts.
A player to be named later goes to Toronto in the deal.
The 29-year-old Lemon, a nine-year CFL veteran, was in his third season with the Argos. He has five tackles, one sack and one forced fumble this year.
Lemon was a CFL East all-star in 2016.
The native of Charleston, S.C., has now been on the active or practice roster of seven of nine CFL teams. He joins a Lions team that is last in the CFL West with nine sacks this season.
After a bye week, the Lions return to action Aug. 4 in Calgary against the Stampeders.
