If you don’t know the name now… You soon will.
Jason Cabinda. Linebacker for the Oakland Raiders.
On Tuesday the Raiders released veteran linebacker Derrick Johnson to make way for the young playmaking Jason Cabinda.
Cabinda grew up in Flemington, NJ and was a star two way player for Hunterdon Central Regional High School. He was a standout running back and linebacker. Before choosing to solely focus on Football, Cabinda was also an accomplished lacrosse player.
He accepted a scholarship to play at Penn State University, and fully took advantage of his opportunity.
In his four years as PSU, Cabinda played in 40 games. Including 13 his senior season. He finished his college career with 285 total tackles, 116 of them being solo tackles, 17 for loss. Cabinda added 1 interception and 7 sacks including this huge game winner against OSU..
Jason then signed a free agent contract with the Oakland Raiders. He played very well in the preseason and was then signed to the Raiders practice squad.
Well… Now it is this young man’s time to show what he’s made of. He was activated to the 53-Man Roster and will be in uniform this Sunday.
Official: We have signed LB Jason Cabinda to the active roster.
