If you have health issues, you better sign on with the Lions, as now Dante Marsh has cleared his medical following the Olafioye medical clearance, which kept him from his shot with the NFL.

VANCOUVER -- The B.C. Lions have given all-star defensive back Dante Marsh a clean bill of health.
Marsh re-signed with the CFL club in mid-February but the deal was contingent on him passing a physical following off-season shoulder surgery.
Lions GM Wally Buono said Monday the team's medical staff has cleared Marsh to play this season.
The five-foot-10, 190-pound Marsh has spent his entire eight-year CFL career with B.C., winning two Grey Cups.
Marsh, 31, is a three-time West Division all-star and was named a CFL-all star last season for the first time.
Buono says Marsh's return "strengthens an already veteran group in the secondary.''
