Former Susquehannock High School football standout Chaz Powell was one 10 players waived by the Oakland Raiders on Monday.
The moves were made so the Raiders could get down to their 75-man limit. Powell, listed as a safety, saw action in two preseason games with the Raiders on the punt return and punt coverage units, according to his agent Derek Gilmore.
Powell went undrafted out of Penn State this year but signed a free agent contract with the Raiders in hopes of making the squad as a backup defensive back and special teams performer.
He was a starting cornerback for the Nittany Lions last season and also saw time at wideout and served as Penn State's main kickoff return man the past few seasons.
Powell has yet to make contact with any teams because he is still on waivers, Gilmore said.
"What we're trying to do right now is we're waiting until everybody gets down to their 53-man rosters and then we'll have to look and see what teams might be interested in him," Gilmore said.
All National Football League teams have to set their 53-man rosters by Saturday.
Tribue: Central York High School graduate Wayne Tribue, meanwhile, is still fighting for a roster spot with the Denver Broncos. Tribue also went undrafted this year after starting along the offensive line at Temple University. The 6-foot, 3-inch, 329-pounder was not one of the 12 players cut by the Denver Broncos on Monday was still listed on the Broncos' roster as of Monday night.
