Former Riders’ LB Samuel Eguavoen records two tackles, sack in NFL debut

A former CFL linebacker is making plays south of the border.

Samuel Eguavoen recorded two tackles, half a sack, and one tackle for loss in his NFL debut on Sunday.

The game did not go well for the Dolphins, losing 59-10 at home against the Baltimore Ravens. Lamar Jackson completed 17-of-20 pass attempts for 324 yards and five touchdowns. Robert Griffin III came on in relief and went six-for-six for 55 yards and a touchdown.

Miami also allowed 256 rushing yards, including a 60-yard carry by Anthony Levine.

Eguavoen started 18 games with Saskatchewan last season, recording 81 tackles, three sacks, two forced fumbles, and one interception. He earned a starting role on the Dolphins’ defence during training camp, his first in the NFL.
