Lions, WR Arcenaux agree to terms

Vancouver, BC (Sports Network) - The British Columbia Lions and wideout Emmanuel Arcenaux agreed to terms on a contract Tuesday.

"We are very pleased to have Emmanuel returning to the club," said Lions vice president of football operations and GM Wally Buono. "He brings experience, leadership and speed to our offence and I know fans will be very excited to see him back on the field in a Lions uniform."

Arcenaux last played with the Leos in 2010, when he totaled 67 receptions for 1,114 yards and five touchdowns. Over the last three seasons, the Alcorn State product suited up for the NFL's Minnesota Vikings, Washington Redskins and New York Jets.

"I am honoured to be back with the Lions," said Arceneaux from his home in Louisiana. "My last meaningful game as a pro came in the playoffs back in 2010 and it will be a great feeling to get back on the field with everyone in BC. I've missed playing in Vancouver, I've missed the fans and I'm ready to start having fun again."

Arcenaux started all 36 games of his CFL career, amassing 130 catches for 1,972 yards and 12 TDs.
