"Big T" and "Javy G" are the latest to ink deals with the Grey Cup champion B.C. Lions.

Defensive lineman Tyrone Williams re-signed while linebacker Javier Glatt agreed to a contract extension yesterday.

Williams, September's Canadian Football League lineman of the month, had 46 tackles, four sacks and five pass knockdowns during his all-star 2006 season.

University of B.C. product Glatt led the Lions with 82 defensive tackles in his first year as a starter. The four-year veteran's season climaxed late in the Grey Cup when he forced Montreal Alouettes' running back Robert Edwards to fumble on the one-yard line. Otis Floyd recovered, thwarting Montreal's comeback attempt.

Next year was to have been Glatt's option year.

"I'm flattered the team has shown confidence in me," Glatt said. "I'm still going to camp with the mindset that I'll be battling for a job."
