This is what the Canadian Football League (CFL) club announced on Tuesday.
The 26-year-old center played 27 games in an "Als" uniform between 2017 and 2019. Last year, he wore the Toronto Argonauts uniform.
The American was also until recently at the “Argos” training camp. He even played in the Queen City club's preseason game against the Ottawa Redblacks last Friday, but was released two days later.
In his career, Pipkin completed 112 of 208 passes he attempted for 1,453 yards and four touchdowns in 34 CFL games. He also had 14 majors and 449 yards with his legs.
At the Lions, the Indiana native joins a group of quarterbacks that already includes Michael O'Connor, Nathan Rourke and Kevin Thomson.
