Jordan Linnen is at B.C. Lions' main camp in Kamloops.

Rams’ defensive back makes Lions’ main camp

Former Big Kahuna Rams defensive back Jordan Linnen, who was invited to the B.C. Lions rookie camp in Kamloops last month, has impressive the team enough to stick around.

At the three-day rookie camp, Linnen, a Frank Hurt Secondary grad, earned a spot at main camp – also held in Kamloops – this week. He’s listed as a non-counting junior player, meaning that he is not property of the Canadian Football League team but is territorially protected.

“(Lions head coach) Wally Buono has made it clear in the past that there are no tourists and no one is ever invited to main camp as a gesture of goodwill,” Rams media director Chris Swartz said.

“If you’re at camp, it’s because you earned it.”

Linnen is currently listed as third on the Lions’ depth chart at the left-side cornerback spot, behind 11-year CFL veteran Davis Sanchez and second-year back Hamid Mahmoudi.
