Trashaun Nixon joins the Toronto Argonauts of the CFL

Former Aggie linebacker Trashaun Nixon is now with the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League. Nixon confirmed to the Sun-News that he has in fact signed with the Argonauts, and is listed on the the team's current roster.

Nixon, listed at 6-foot-1, 235 pounds, had a tryout with the New Orleans Saints following the 2014 NFL Draft. He will now hope to stick with the Argonauts.

A transfer to NMSU from Ventura College, Nixon was one of the Aggies top defensive players the past two seasons. Last year he played outside linebacker before moving inside. He finished second on the team with 93 tackles and led the way with 13 tackles for a loss. Nixon has a nice blend of size and speed, and he led the Aggies last season with three sacks.

Two other Aggies signed as undrafted free agents this past offseason - wide receiver Austin Franklin and offensive lineman Davonte Wallace - are still on NFL rosters with the St. Louis Rams and Miami Dolphins, respectively.
