Saints Promote LB Adam Bighill, Waive OT Bryce Harris


The New Orleans Saints officially waived OT Bryce Harris on Saturday and promoted LB Adam Bighill to their active roster.

Bighill, 28, wound up going undrafted out of Central Washington back in 2011 and eventually agreed to a deal with the BC Lions. He was a four-time All Star during his CFL career.

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 and waived shortly after.

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.

Harris, 28, originally signed on with the Falcons as an undrafted free agent out of Fresno State back in 2012. He later joined the Saints before the start of the 2012 season and spent three years in New Orleans before he was waived at the start of the 2015 season.

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 was on and off of the Saints’ roster for the most of the season before signing on with the Lions. After Detroit cut him loose, the 49ers signed him to a contract.

The Saints claimed him off of waivers from the 49ers two weeks ago.

In 2017, Harris has been active for two games for the Saints.
