After being cut from the Cleveland Browns practice roster, former B.C. Lions linebacker Solomon Elimimian arrived back in Vancouver Monday night.

Elimimian, who joined the Browns Sept. 1 after being cut by the Minnesota Vikings on Aug. 25, spent two seasons with the Lions before signing a two-year deal with the Vikings following the 2011 campaign.

Head coach Mike Benevides was asked about his former linebacker on the TEAM 1040 radio.

"He is certainly a BC Lion in terms of rights and all that stuff," Benevides said. "And obviously we know how good of a player he is and the more you can have great. But he has to go through that process, maybe there is someone else or another organization that has a need for his kind of player down there so we will wait and see."

The 25-year-old now has a 10-day window, until September 13, to catch on with another NFL club before his rights revert to the Lions.

He was named the CFL's Most Outstanding Rookie in 2010 before posting 98 tackles with the Lions in 2011.
