Saints Re-Sign Bryce Harris, Release Adam Bighill
The New Orleans Saints made a few roster moves on Tuesday.
The team re-signed offensive tackle Bryce Harris, while waiving linebacker Adam Bighill, and adding running back Daniel Lasco to the practice squad.
The 28-year old Harris, who spent three seasons with the Saints (2012-2014) earlier in his career, spent training camp with the Saints before being released for the first time on September 2.
Harris was re-signed on September 4, before his second release on September 5.
The Saints later re-signed Harris once again, before releasing him on Monday, to make room for Bighill.
The 6-foot-6, 300-pound Harris has appeared in 35 career games, all but one with the Saints, including 4 starts.
The 28-year old Bighill, who played 6 CFL seasons with the British Columbia Lions, while being honored as a 4-time CFL all-star, compiled 108 tackles and 5 sacks in 2016, one season after being named the CFL’s most outstanding defensive player in 2015.
The 5-foot-10, 230-pound Bighill played his college football at Central Washington, where he earned first-team Division II All-American honors in his senior year.
Lasco was selected by the Saints in the 7th round of the 2016 NFL Draft out of California.
Last season, in limited action, Lasco rushed for 32 yards on 11 carries.
The 24-year old Lasco was waived by the Saints last Friday.
