He was drafted in the eighth round, 66th overall by the Tiger-Cats in the 2017 CFL Draft and he signed with the team on May 24, 2017.

In the first season of his professional career, Thomas Erlington was largely a special teams contributor, but blossomed into an effective change of pace back and returner in 2018, putting up 218 yards on 34 carries for better than a 6 yard per carry average. He scored two touchdowns during the regular season; a rushing score and a blocked punt recovery for a touchdown. Both scores came against Montreal, although in separate games. During the playoffs, Thomas Erlington had three rushes for 15 yards as well as a receiving touchdown for the Ti-Cats, who reached the East Division finals but were defeated by Ottawa, who advanced to the 106th Grey Cup. Following the season, he was signed to a two year extension. Thomas-Erlington suffered a knee injury early in the 2019 season and underwent surgery on July 10, 2019. He signed a contract extension with the team on December 27, 2020.
