The cuts keep coming for West Virginia alumni in the NFL, with the fourth former Mountaineer having been cut today.
The Las Vegas Raiders, in a somewhat surprising move, waived former WVU safety Karl Joseph Tuesday afternoon, just under an hour before the official 4 p.m. deadline for roster trimming.

After being drafted by the Raiders in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft and spent four seasons with the Raiders before signing with the Cleveland Browns last offseason. Joseph returned to the Raiders this offseason with the expectation of providing depth as a backup in the secondary.
With the cut, Joseph will now look to latch on to an NFL team seeking depth in the secondary in the aftermath of the 4 p.m. roster cuts.
