The B.C. Lions have signed Montreal Alouettes DB Barron Miles to a two-year contract on Wednesday.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The 33-year-old Nebraska alumni spent his entire CFL career with Montreal, dating back to 1998 when he signed as a free agent. He captured the East Division Rookie of the Year award that season while leading the team in tackles and interceptions.
In 2002, Miles was named East Division Most Outstanding Defensive Player after missing most of the 2001 season following shoulder surgery. Miles was also selected to the 1999, 2000 and 2002 CFL All-Star team.
Selected 199th by the Pittsburgh Steelers in 1995 NFL draft, Miles spent the entire season on the injured reserve list before being released following the 1996 training camp.
He re-signed with the Steelers in 1997 and was assigned to the Frankfurt Galaxy of the NFL Europe League before subsequently being released by the Steelers
