Dickenson's a Done Deal


Posted Jun 4, 2007


The BC Lions Football Club announced today that quarterback Dave Dickenson has signed a contract extension. In keeping with club policy, details on the deal were not released, though the deal is though to be worth $1.4 million over the course of the contract with incentives.

Dickenson led the CFL in quarterbacking efficiency last year with a 111.2 rating completing 238 of 338 passes for 3032 yards and 22 TD’s. The 34 year-old Montana-native and fifth-year Lion was also named the Most Outstanding Player in last season’s Grey Cup victory over the Montreal Alouettes.

 

Dave is an outstanding leader on our football club and I am very pleased to have this agreement in place,” said Lions GM and head coach Wally Buono. “The quality of quarterbacks on our roster gives our fans a lot to be excited about and provides our team with stability for seasons to come.”

 

Dickenson currently ranks 4th in Lions history with his 12,833 passing yards and 87 TD’s. His efficiency rating as a Lion of 114.0 leads the club. In his four seasons with the Lions, the team has finished in first place in the West Division three times, played in two Grey Cups and earned one championship.

 

I’m excited about getting this contract resolved and getting to work on the field,” said Dickenson. “I am thrilled to be a Lion and can’t wait to start down the road towards winning another championship for our fans.”
