BC Lions to honour all-time great receiver Geroy Simon (VIDEO)

Geroy Simon has retired as the CFL's all-time leader in receiving yards and with two Grey Cup victories in his final three seasons – one with the BC Lions in 2011, the other in 2013 with Saskatchewan.

He exited stage right, on top of the theatre.

And the longtime Lion will now be honoured and inducted into the team's Ring of Honour, with a special ceremony prior to B.C.'s game against Calgary on July 25, 2014.
