Lions sign Global DL Brauns, National WR Dixon

VANCOUVER — The BC Lions have signed Global DL Karlis Brauns and National WR Dallas Dixon.

Brauns- The six-foot-four, 270-pound native of Riga, Latvia was selected by the club in round one (third overall) in Tuesday’s Global Draft. Brauns recently turned heads at the College Gridiron Showcase in Texas and previously enjoyed an All-Star season with the ELF Wroclaw Panthers in Poland.

Kind of funny, Lions sign one player from the other side of the known world (Latvia!) & the other from their backyard, Dixon probably won't even have to move. I'll be interested to watch Brauns progression. If his mental strengths (discipline, work ethic, football smarts) match his physical attributes he could be a keeper.
