B.C. Lions center Cody Husband retires from CFL

After seven years, the offensive lineman is hanging them up.

After seven seasons in the Canadian Football League, Cody Husband has decided to call it a career.

The New Westminster native made it official Friday, retiring from the B.C. Lions.

The 31 year old lineman was a rock in the middle of the Leos offensive line from 2014-2018, and played 77 pro games overall, starting his career with two seasons (2012-13) in Hamilton. Impressive for a guy who went undrafted in 2010, signing with the Tiger-Cats as a free agent after playing his college ball at the University of British Columbia.

Husband is the second significant loss to the Lions O-line this off-season.

Tackle Jovan Olafioye announced his retirement in early April.

Training camp for the CFL squad kicks off May 19 in Kamloops. The Lions host the Calgary Stampeders in preseason action June 7 and open the 2019 season eight days later with a home game against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers at B.C. Place Stadium.
