CFL Pass

Cut by San Francisco 49ers, Shawn Lemon returns to the CFL

It was only a matter of time before Shawn Lemon was back in the Canadian Football League after being cut by the NFL’s San Francisco 49ers, but no one was sure where.

It was a three-horse race between the BC Lions, Ottawa RedBlacks and Grey Cup-hosting Winnipeg Blue Bombers, with BC the first team to drop out of the Lemon sweepstakes.

And then it was down to Ottawa and Winnipeg. Shawn Lemon goes toooo…

It’s not quite *official* yet though…

The agreement has Lemon in Ottawa through 2016 and is huge for RNation since Aston Whiteside is now out for the season.

Lemon was a beast last year with the Grey Cup champion Calgary Stampeders, nabbing 31 tackles, 13 sacks and an interception.
