Found January 23, 2012 on NorthWest Sports Beat:
Khalif Mitchell, who became a dominant force in helping the Lions win the 2011 Grey Cup, has re-signed with B.C. rather than become a free agent next month.

The 6-foot-5, 315-pound West Division all-star may have even attracted interest in the National Football League, where he had once played for the San Francisco 49ers.

Quote: “It’s great news for our club, our fans and our league that Khalif has agreed to remain with the Lions,” Wally Buono, the team’s general manager, said in a Monday news release. “Khalif is a great player on the field and a dynamic personality that many of our fans have grown to love.” Quote: “It’s a great feeling to know that I am returning to the organization that gave me an opportunity to develop into the player I am today,” said Mitchell.
