The CFL’s all-time leader in receptions and receiving yards is reportedly set to retire.
According to Farhan Lalji of TSN, Saskatchewan Roughriders slotback Geroy Simon is “expected” to call it quits after a 15-season CFL career in which he hauled in 1,029 passes for 16,352 yards and 103 touchdowns.
The 38-year-old Simon caught 40 passes for 565 yards and three touchdowns for Grey Cup-winning Saskatchewan in 2013. He played the majority of his career for the British Columbia Lions, for whom he had two seasons of 100 catches or more.
A University of Maryland product, Simon had NFL stints with multiple clubs, including the Buccaneers and Steelers. His first CFL season was in 1999, when he caught 34 passes for Winnipeg. It was the start of a prolific career.
