Brent Johnson picked-up his new GMC Sierra truck yesterday, but the B.C. Lions' defensive end won't be giving some Grey Cup-winning teammates a lift next season.

Linebacker Carl Kidd wasn't offered a new contract, defensive end Chris Wilson signed with the Washington Redskins and offensive lineman Rob Murphy may return to the NFL.

"I'm not happy about it, I liked playing with Kidd," Johnson said. "[Wilson was] a great player for us and is only going to get better with age."

Johnson was voted Warrior of the Year in a GM-sponsored, CFL on CBC contest. The truck has space for Johnson's snowboard and surfboard.
