Another CFL player appears may be heading for a tryout in the NFL as the Toronto Argonauts announced Monday they had released linebacker Marcus Ball.

It’s a big loss for Toronto’s defence.

Ball had 69 tackles, four sacks and three interceptions last season.

He joined the Argos in 2012 and was part of the Grey Cup winning team, with two key interceptions in the East final.

During Toronto’s entire 2012 playoff run he had a total of 15 tackles and three interceptions and was named the team’s outstanding defensive player for his efforts.
