Import defenders Jonathan Brown and Chase Bullock agreed to contracts with the B.C. Lions, the team announced on Thursday.

Brown, a defensive lineman, was a free agent heading into the 2010 season after spending six seasons with the Toronto Argonauts. Brown was named to four East Division all-star teams and earned CFL all-star honours in 2005 and 2007.

An Oklahoma native, Brown registered 51 sacks and 16 tackles for losses and eight fumble recoveries in 97 career games.

Bullock signed as an undrafted free agent with the Arizona Cardinals in 2009. After the Cardinals released him, the linebacker spent time with the UFL's New York Sentinels last year.
