Another former Alabama standout has joined the Washington Redskins.
While the franchise drafted the Crimson Tide’s defense, it added an offensive player to its practice squad on Tuesday.
According to a report from Craig Hoffman, the Redskins added former Tide running back, Derrick Gore to its practice squad.
#Redskins also announce they’ve added RB Derrick Gore and LB Pete Robertson to the practice squad.

Gore, a native of Syracuse, N.Y., played two seasons at Alabama (2015-16) after arriving from Coffeyville Community College in Kansas as a walk-on. He was a part of two Southeastern Conference titles and a College Football Playoff National Championship in 2015 with the Tide. Gore recorded his first career rushing touchdown in the 2016 season.
He was a tough, hard-nosed back that had speed and strong hands out the backfield. He would transfer to Louisiana-Monroe to finish his collegiate career; however, Alabama fans remember the quality he brought to Bryant-Denny Stadium.
He played in the preseason for the Los Angeles Chargers, but ended up getting cut.
Hopefully, he can become a star in the NFL for the Redskins.
