Travis Lulay is staying put, signing a two-year contract with the BC Lions, as reported by TSN’s Farhan Lalji.

The 32-year-old quarterback who lost his starting job to youngster Jonathon Jennings this past season is expected to play a mentorship role for the Lions. Jennings will still be the starter.
Jennings showed well in his first CFL season, completing 66% of his passes for 2004 yards. He threw 15 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.
Lulay has been with the Lions since 2009, leading the team to the Grey Cup in 2011. He won the Most Outstanding Player Award in 2011, and was also named the MVP of the Grey Cup.
But like we have learned with the hockey team in this city, 2011 is a long time ago. Lulay isn’t the same player he used to be, but he is still a capable backup and should make a great mentor for Jennings.
