Simoni Lawrence is leaving the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

The 25-year-old linebacker is expected to sign with the Minnesota Vikings in the coming days, according to TSN's Matthew Scianitti.

Lawrence tweeted out a message of thanks to the Ticats on Sunday. In the tweet Lawrence expressed his gratitude to various members of the team, staff and community, finishing the message with:

"I have been blessed to have had a chance to spend a season with such a great organization. This was not an easy choice for my family and me, who loved the atmosphere in Hamilton. Thank you Ticat Nation! "Eat them raw." GOD BLESS."

Lawrence has signed with a number of NFL clubs in the past, including the St. Louis Rams, Philadelphia Eagles, Chicago Bears and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He has never appeared in an NFL game.
