It appears the all-time leading receiver in CFL history is set to retire.

TSN's Farhan Lalji is reporting that Geroy Simon is expected to call it a career after 15 seasons.

Lalji says that Simon will not be in uniform on Sunday when the Saskatchewan Roughriders open training camp. The 38-year-old will retire as a member of the Roughriders after spending just one season in the prairie province, and winning his third Grey Cup in the process.

A formal press conference is expected to take place later this week.

Simon spent most of his career in British Columbia with the Lions winning Grey Cups in 2006 and 2011. He spent the first two seasons of his career with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

Simon tallied 16,352 yards receiving and 103 touchdown receptions over his tenure in the league.
