The B.C. Lions beefed up their offensive line with two imports yesterday and made one domestic cut.

Jason Russell, a 24-year-old from Hilliard, Ark., was released from the Montreal Alouettes' training camp before 2006's regular season and joined Arena Football League's Austin Wranglers last summer. Russell went to Indianapolis Colts' training camp as a free agent in 2005.

Buffalo-born 22-year-old Matt Roth was part of St. John Fisher College Cardinals' top-ranked offense in 2006.

n Meanwhile, Molson is out of the Lions' den (and B.C. Place Stadium). Surrey's Russell Brewing Company is the Leos' official beer for the next three years.
