Early career

Born in Caxias, Maranhão, Caion made his senior debuts with Iraty in 2008, after being a youth player for Icasa in the previous year.

In 2009, he joined Ferroviário. After three months playing for the side in the state leagues, he moved abroad.

Gangwon FC

On 30 March 2009, Caion joined K-League newly formed side Gangwon FC, thus becoming the club's first-ever Brazilian player.

He made his debut for Gangwon on 5 May, against Incheon United, for that year's League Cup, assisting Park Jong-Jin in Gangwon's first goal. He made his league debut on 25 July, against Busan I'Park, as a substitute. Caion scored his first goal in the last match of 2009 K-League, netting the winner against Jeju United.

In the following season, Caion only played in the reserve league, rescinded his link in June 2010.

Back to Brazil

After cancelling his link with Gangwon, Caion returned to Brazil, but only joined a side in November 2011, signing with Caxias. On 25 May 2012 he moved to Mirassol.

On 6 September, after scoring five goals in only six matches, Caion joined Bragantino on loan. After his return to Mirassol, he netted twice in a 6–2 routing over Palmeiras on 27 March 2013.

On 13 May Caion joined Série A side Náutico. However, three months later he moved to Chapecoense.

In January 2014 Caion joined newly promoted side Grêmio Osasco Audax. On 23 April, he moved to Portuguesa. However, two months later he was released by Lusa.

Move to Iraq

In August 2014, Caion joined Al Shorta, an Iraqi club who had won back-to-back Iraqi Premier League titles in 2013 and 2014. Caion became the club's second ever Brazilian player after Cristiano da Silva Santos who left the club in June 2014. Caion scored his first goal in a 2-1 win over Al-Minaa, opening the scoring in the match with an exquisite left-foot finish across the goalkeeper and into the net.
