The Falcons later signed Harris to a contract, but he was unfortunately among their roster cuts coming out of the preseason last year.
Harris had brief stints with the Jaguars and Dolphins before he signed on with the Saints. He’s been on and off of the Saints’ roster this year.
In 2017, Harris has been active for two games for the Saints.

The Saints brought Bighill in a for a workout following last season and wound up signing future/reserve contract this past January. Unfortunately, the Saints cut him loose coming out of the preseason before adding him to their practice squad a few days later.
New Orleans called Bighill earlier this year before waiving him and later re-signing him to their practice squad. He was promoted to their active roster last week.
During his CFL career, Bighill recorded 489 tackles, 33 sacks, eight interceptions with one being returned for a touchdown and eight forced fumbles over the course of 99 games and six seasons.
