Bo Scarbrough Cut By Raiders
All 32 NFL franchises had to cut their rosters down to 85 players by 4 p.m. CST Tuesday. As a result, most teams had to cut about five players, but only one former Alabama Crimson Tide player received that unfortunate call from the front office: running back Bo Scarbrough.
Scarbrough joined the Las Vegas Raiders just 11 days ago, giving the franchise the most Alabama alumni on any NFL roster. The Raiders at the time of the signing also had four running backs alone who had spent time with the Alabama Crimson Tide: starter Josh Jacobs, backup Kenyon Drake and BJ Emmons, who finished his college career at Florida Atlantic.
Alabama now has 78 total players in the NFL on 30 franchises. Only the New Orleans Saints and the Seattle Seahawks are without Crimson Tide alumni on their rosters.
The Raiders are now tied with the Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots for the most Alabama alumni with five.
Other notable cuts from around the NFL Tuesday include:
- Tim Tebow, TE, Jacksonville Jaguars\
- KJ Costello, QB, Los Angeles Chargers
- Alfred Morris, RB, New York Giants
- Kerryon Johnson, RB, Philadelphia Eagles
- Lamar Miller, RB, Washington Football Team
- Prince Amukamara, CB, New Orleans Saints
- Brett Maher, K, New Orleans Saints
- John Franklin III, WR, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
- Josh Rosen, QB, San Francisco 49ers
