Ball, 29, signed as a free agent with the Argonauts back in February of 2012. He spent two years with the Argonauts and totaled 142 tackles, seven sacks, four interceptions, two returned for touchdowns and three fumble recoveries over this time.
New Orleans wound up signing him to a three-year contract in April of 2014 and Ball would go on to appear in 12 games and recorded 16 tackles for the Saints.
Ball later caught on with the Panthers last year but was, unfortunately, among their final roster cuts coming out of the preseason. The Panthers later signed him to their practice squad.
Ball hasn’t appeared in an NFL game since the 2014 season when he was playing for the Saints.
