JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - Another former Red Wolf is heading north of the border. Ronheen Bingham tweeted Friday that he signed a deal with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.
This CFL opportunity is another chapter in his comeback story. Bingham led Arkansas State in 2018 with 18.5 tackles for a loss, 9 sacks, and 7 QB hurries. He was named the Sun Belt Defensive Player of the Year and a Phil Steele All-American (4th Team). But Bingham suffered a torn MCL in the Arizona Bowl, delaying his pro pigskin journey.
Ronheen rehabbed throughout 2019 and is rewarded with a chance in Canada. He’s one of seven A-State alums on a CFL roster.
