B.C. Lions linebacker Solomon Elimimian has reportedly signed with the Cleveland Browns of the NFL.

Elimimian's agent, Bardia Ghahremani, told ESPN radio in Minneapolis that his client had signed a futures contract with the Browns. The Lions deny the report, though, because Elimimian is under contract with the CFL team until Feb. 15.

Elimimian was with the Browns for two days just prior to the start of the 2012 season but was cut and returned to B.C.
