Scarbrough, 23, is a former seventh-round pick by the Cowboys out of Alabama in the 2018 NFL Draft. He signed a four-year, year, $2.5 million rookie contract but was among their final roster cuts coming out of the preseason and signed to their practice squad.
He was cut loose from Dallas’ taxi squad after a month and joined the Jaguars’ practice squad soon after. The Seahawks claimed him from Jacksonville but was cut loose at the end of this year’s preseason.
The Lions signed him to their practice squad earlier this month.
During his college career, Scarbrough recorded 267 rushing attempts for 1,512 yards (5.7 YPC) and 20 touchdowns, to go along with 21 receptions for 131 yards receiving (6.2 YPC) and no touchdowns.
