The B.C. Lions are reportedly seeing what the trade market might bare for linebacker Solomon Elimimian.
#BCLions are exploring trade possibilities for Solomon Elimimian & David Foucault, per sources. Nothing is imminent. GM Ed Hervey declined comment. He did say at the Reilly signing that fans could expect the team to have to part with some familiar names. @cfl @CFLonTSN @TSN1040

Elimimian suffered a non-fracture wrist injury in the Leos Week 5 win against Winnipeg last season and didn’t suit up again for the rest of the year. He had surgery to repair a dislocation and some nerve damage according to 3DownNation’s Lowell Ullrich.
The 32-year-old made 26 tackles in four games in 2018 and has been a consistently excellent performer during his nine-year career. Elimimian is a two-time Most Outstanding Defensive Player, won the CFL MOP award in 2014 to go with the CFL Most Outstanding Rookie Award and Grey Cup championship in 2011.
Through 118 CFL games, Elimimian has made 745 tackles, 29 sacks, eight interceptions and eight forced fumbles during his career and still seems to have some game left.
