The Detroit Lions announced Tuesday that they’ve promoted LB Jason Cabinda to their active roster.
Detroit had an open roster spot after placing TE T.J. Hockenson on injured reserve yesterday.
Cabinda, 23, wound up going undrafted out of Penn State last year. He later signed a three-year, $1.71 million contract with the Raiders but was waived coming out of the preseason.
Cabinda was on and off of the Raiders’ practice squad and returned to Oakland this past March on an exclusive rights contract. However, he was once again among their final roster cuts and later signed to the Lions’ practice squad.
In 2018, Cabinda appeared in 10 games for the Raiders and recorded 21 tackles and no sacks.
