Black Tuesday as former FAU linebacker Joseph is waived by Raiders

No Florida Atlantic player has made the regular-season roster of a National Football League team, and the odds just got a lot slimmer that the streak will be snapped this season.

The ranks of former Owls who will be heading to NFL training camps was cut in half Tuesday when linebacker Frantz Joseph was waived by the Raiders.

Jervonte Jackson is still scheduled to report to Philadelphia Eagles training camp later this month, but it was always assumed Joseph had the best chance to be the first Owl to play in the NFL.

After all, it was Joseph who had the ESPN crew in tow at FAU's Pro Day. And there were plenty of articles written out of Oakland raving about Joseph's play.

Well, that apparently didn't impress the Raiders who unceremoniously dumped Joseph before training camp even began.

Joseph might land on his feet. Joseph said he had offers from the Ravens and the Redskins before he signed as a free agent after being shunned in the NFL Draft.

We'll see, but for now all the Owl fans who bought a Frantz Joseph Raiders jersey had better trade it in for an Eagles' jersey with Jackson's name on the back.
