He was not chosen in the 2015 NFL Draft and was cut from the Baltimore Ravens on May 27, 2015, yet former Alabama linebacker Trey DePriest has another shot at a pro career.
He has joined a startup franchise called “Major League Football,” which began its Territorial Draft this week.
The draft started at 10 a.m. (EST) and consisted of 40 rounds with 320 players being selected. DePriest was selected in the second round by Team Cottrell, a group led by former NFL coach Ted Cottrell. He was a member of two Southeastern Conference championships (2012, 2014) and two national titles (2011, 2012) during his time at Alabama from 2011-14.
DePriest recorded 189 tackles, 16 tackles for loss, two sacks, five pass breakups, four quarterback hurries and two forced fumbles at Alabama.
