NWSB Insider and BC Lions’ blogger Andrew Deutschmann talks about the never-ending saga of Khalif Mitchell, a thankfully former BC Lion. His talent and tenacity are just about unmatched throughout the CFL and when he’s on, he is the best defensive player in the league, in my mind. He didn’t always have huge numbers, but he always attracts attention from the other team and opens up opportunities for his teammates to make plays.

He may start next game against Calgary as well. C’mon and roar you Lions roar.

Due to a racial slur on his Twitter account, the BC Lions have benched DT Khalif Mitchell for one game.
