The Minnesota Vikings have signed CFL linebacker Solomon Elimimian, Tom Pelissero of 1500ESPN.com reports.
According to Pelisserio, Elimimian and the Vikings have agreed to a two-year contract.
Undrafted out of Hawaii in 2009, Elimimian had a brief stint with the Buffalo Bills before crossing the border and spending the last two seasons with the B.C. Lions. In helping the Lions to a Grey Cup in 2011, Elimimian earned All-Star honors and was voted the league's "Hardest Hitter" in a TSN player poll.
Elimimian drew interest from the NFL and began his U.S. tour with the Vikings on December 28. Elimimian also worked out for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Jacksonville Jaguars and St. Louis Rams before agreeing to terms with the Vikings.
During last year's CFL signing window, which runs through mid-February, the Vikings signed wide receiver Emmanuel Arceneaux. The Vikings have also expressed interest in Elimimian's teammates Khalif Mitchell and Jovan Olafioye.
