Posey joined the Lions halfway through the 2018 season, after trying his hand in the NFL. The six-foot-two, 210-pound pass-catcher suited up in eight games in BC, hauling in 29 catches for 395 yards and three touchdowns.

He was also the Grey Cup Most Valuable Player after leading the game with seven catches for 175 yards, including a Grey Cup record-breaking 100-yard touchdown.

The 28-year-old won the Grey Cup with Toronto in 2017 and was ranked No. 22 on CFL.ca’s top 30 pending free agent list.
