VANCOUVER - Wide receiver Shawn Gore has re-signed with the B.C. Lions.

The speedy wideout led the Lions with 722 receiving yards in 2012. The Toronto native has spent three seasons with the team after being selected in the second round (10th overall) in the 2010 Canadian draft.

Gore had a season-high 96 receiving yards in a 28-23 win over the Toronto Argonauts on Sept. 15. He had a 48-yard reception in the game, his longest gain of the year.

Gore has 122 receptions for 1,558 yards and six touchdowns over 48 regular-season games.

With veteran receivers Arland Bruce III and Geroy Simon no longer with the club, the Lions will rely on Gore to be a major part of their offence in 2013.
