He would sign a 2-year deal with the BC Lions in the Canadian Football League, before opting-out after their season was canceled. He was a CFL All-Star in 2019.

He is one of 10 Roughnecks players to sign with pro teams. P.J. Walker, Edmond Robinson, and Saivion Smith are the only ones remaining on NFL rosters.
