According to Scott Mitchell of the Calgary Sun, the Pittsburgh Steelers are one of a few teams that’s scheduled to workout free agent defensive end Shawn Lemon this week.
Lemon, who has played the last two seasons with the Calgary Stampeders of the CFL, recorded 13 sacks as a defensive end in 2014.
Lemon played his college football at Akron and at 6’2″, 251 pounds, he would be a candidate to play outside linebacker in the Steelers 3-4 defense.
Lemon started all 18 games and led the team with 13 sacks, five tackles for a loss of 15 yards and eight forced fumbles. He also had 31 tackles, a special-teams tackle and an interception. He set a new Stampeder record for forced fumbles in a season with seven on Nov. 1 against Winnipeg and tied the CFL record on Nov. 7 against BC. His 13 sacks tied him for second in the CFL. He was named the CFL’s defensive player of the week for Week 15 when he recorded three tackles, a pair of sacks and a forced fumble to help the Stamps defeat the Roughriders. He established career highs in games played, tackles and sacks and his interception was the first of his career. Lemon started the Western Final and recorded three tackles and two knockdowns. He also started in the Grey Cup where he had two tackles, a sack and a knockdown. He was the Stampeders nominee for Most Outstanding Defensive Player.
