The New Orleans Saints have released former CFL all-star linebacker Adam Bighill.
Bighill suited up in three games for the Saints in 2017 recording one tackle after making the practice squad out of training camp. Bighill signed a reserve/futures contract with the Saints in January but he was let go on Monday.
The 29-year-old racked up 108 tackles – third most in the CFL – five sacks and one interception in 2016 for the B.C. Lions while earning league all-star honours for the fourth time in his six-year CFL career.
While Bighill will likely hope for another NFL opportunity, he could look to return north of the border. CFL training camps get underway on Sunday.
