2018: Solomon was limited to just four regular season games due to a wrist injury suffered against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on July 14. When he was in the lineup, Solomon was his typical productive self, amassing 26 defensive tackles. He put on his coaching hat during the back half of the season, signaling in plays for the defence from the sideline. Solomon was able to heal in time to start at middle linebacker for the Lions in the East Semi-Final against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, where he had five tackles.

2017: Setting a standard for linebackers across the league, Solomon broke his own record for defensive tackles in a season with 144 and also became the franchise leader in tackles with 719 to date. The veteran appeared in all 18 regular season games and added six more stops on special teams along with a sack, six tackles for a loss, five quarterback pressures, a pair of pass knockdowns and a fumble recovery. His remarkably consistent play was recognized by his nomination as the Lions’ Outstanding Player and Outstanding Defensive Player. Hitting double digits in tackles six times during the season, Solomon’s most productive outing came in Montreal on July 6 when he piled-up 15 stops.

2010-2018: Through nine incredible CFL campaigns including his mid-season return to the Lions following an NFL bid in 2012, Solomon has become one of the premier linebackers in the CFL and one of the very best in team history. Solomon passed Dante Marsh in 2017 to become the franchise’s all-time leading tackler, besting Marsh’s previous record of 587. He followed-up his second Outstanding Defensive Player award in 2016 by setting the record for most tackles in a single season with 144 in 2017, breaking his previous record of 143 set in 2014.  He is also the only player in league history to win three different Most Outstanding Player awards.
