VANCOUVER, B.C. - The B.C. Lions signed defensive backs Dante Marsh and Jerome Dennis to contract extensions Wednesday.

Marsh's deal keeps him with the Lions through 2011. Details of Dennis's contract weren't available.

"Dante is a leader on and off the field and Jerome continues to develop into an effective defensive back and special teams player," Lions GM/head coach Wally Buono said in a statement. "Stability and consistency are very important to the effectiveness of our defence and these signings provide both of those."

Marsh is entering his sixth season with the Lions after joining the club as a free agent. Marsh has appeared in 80 regular-season games, recording 240 tackles and 13 interceptions.

He has been a West Division all-star twice ('06,'08) and a CFL all-star in 2008.

Dennis is entering his third season with the Lions after joining the club as a free agent. Dennis has appeared in 26 regular-season games, registering 24 defensive tackles and 13 more on special teams.
