AUBURN, Ala. -- Auburn has dismissed defensive tackle Devaunte Sigler for violating undisclosed team rules.

Tigers coach Gus Malzahn announced the decision in a statement Friday. He says "we have high standards for our players" and that "they will represent the team and Auburn the right way."

Sigler was a junior who played in 18 games in his career with 12 tackles. He played in five games last season and had two stops.

Sigler played a bigger role in 2011 when he appeared in all 13 games and had 10 tackles and a sack.
