Over the last two years, Ladler has played for Edmonton Eskimos of the Canadian Football League. As a linebacker for the Eskimos, Ladler has appeared in 34 games and recorded 156 tackles, five interceptions, three fumbles forced and scored one touchdown, a pick-six against the Calgary Stampede during the 2016 season.

Prior to his professional career, Ladler played collegiately at Vanderbilt, as he recorded 201 tackles with nine interceptions, nine passes defensed, five fumbles forced and two fumbles recovered in four seasons.

During his senior year, Ladler led the Commodores with 91 total tackles while pacing all NCAA Division I-A players with five fumbles forced. He was named a first-team All-SEC selection by the coaches.

In Washington, Ladler is reunited with fellow Stephenson (Ga.) High School product Preston Smith.
