Former Lions LB Adam Bighill in prove-it mode with Saints

Linebacker Adam Bighill seems to be performing well in New Orleans.

The four-time CFL all-star has made some eye-catching plays in training camp.

And he’s carried that over into pre-season games.

Bighill has two tackles, one pass knock down and one interception in two pre-season outings.

The five-foot-10, 230 pounder went undrafted by NFL teams coming out of Central Washington in 2011. After six years in the CFL with the B.C. Lions, Bighill inked a deal with New Orleans. He’s stood out to Saints coach Sean Payton during training camp.

“He’s had a lot of production,” Payton said. “Obviously, he is size deficient, but we’re looking for those players that we think can fill a need in a certain area. And if he can play on the four core units in the kicking game, that’ll help his chances.”

ESPN’s Mike Triplett writes Bighill might just force his way onto the Saints 53-man roster.
