We hinted a couple of weeks ago that the BC Lions were working on an extension for star receiver Geroy Simon after beat writer Lowell Ullrich had reported the deal was imminent. Well it appears as though that deal has been completed and the all-time club reception leader will take another step closer to retiring a Lion. Terms of the deal have not been released and no official announcement has come from the Lions.
It’s a great move for the club, as Simon is still a high quality receiver and is one of the most recognized faces of the franchise. Simon, who has made Vancouver his home, has also become a prominent fixture in the community, giving much of his time to represent the team at various charitable functions, or appearing at schools to give back to the youth of the province.
