VANCOUVER -- The BC Lions announced Monday morning that kicker Paul McCallum has signed a contract extension with the team. McCallum was set to enter the option year of his current contract in 2013.
“Paul‘s consistency has been the hallmark of his illustrious career and I’m pleased to have him remain a part of the club,” said vice president of football operations and GM Wally Buono.
Paul played all 18 regular season games for the Lions in 2012, the 13th time in his career he’s not missed an appearance. The BC native is now number nine in league history with 292 games. Good on 44 of 52 field goal attempts last season, Paul now has a CFL-best 10 seasons with a success rate of 80% or better.
