Lions give C Reid, DB Phillips contract extensions
Vancouver, BC (Sports Network) - The British Columbia Lions signed center Angus Reid and defensive back Ryan Phillips to contract extensions on Tuesday.
Reid, who will enter his 13th CFL season in 2013, was part of an offensive line that surrendered a league-low 30 sacks in 2012. He earned his third West Division All-Star berth.
"Having Angus back in 2013 is very good news for our club," said vice president of football operations and GM Wally Buono. "His experience and durability are just two of the many qualities that make him a leader on and off the field and a vital veteran presence on our offensive line."
Phillips led the club with four interceptions last season while being named a West Division All-Star. His 144 consecutive games-played streak is the longest active run in the CFL heading into next season.
