Purifoy signed with the Lions as a free agent in February of 2022. In 18 games, the 30-year-old tallied 55 tackles on defence, and another nine on special teams to go along with a sack, and three interceptions.

Prior to joining the Lions, the team he started his CFL career with in 2016 and 2017, Purifoy suited up in 40 games over three seasons (2018-2021) in Saskatchewan where he recorded 106 defensive tackles, eight interceptions and a forced fumble.

The five-foot-11, 190-pounder also played seven games in Ottawa in 2018, tallying 29 tackles, an interception, and a forced fumble before heading to the Riders to finish out the campaign.
