The Saints took have imported another player from Hamilton.
New Orleans has reportedly signed the Candian Football League’s Erik Harris to a reserve/future contract following a workout Tuesday morning, a source confirmed.
The news was first reported by 3DownNation.com, which covers the CFL.
Harris was a member of the CFL’s Hamilton Tiger-Cats, where Saints cornerback Delvin Breaux used to play.
Listed at 6-foot-3, 225 pounds, Harris played linebacker in the CFL but has the versatility to also play safety. His official listing on the Tiger-Cats’ website is as a defensive back.
Harris finished with 43 tackles and two interceptions last season.
Back in December, coach Sean Payton said the Saints now spend more time scouting the CFL.
“I think anywhere there is football being played you have to pay attention to it,” Payton said. “It’s very limited we’re really looking at the college game, we’re looking at our league, everyone else’s practice squad players, and then the next spot is north.”
