Baker standout added to roster, list of local NFL talent
MOBILE, AL (WNSP) — Blaine Clausell is on the lists.
The former Baker offensive tackle was added to the Washington Redskins’ active roster on Monday, putting another name on the list of local high school talent in the NFL. The same day, Wallace Gilberry, another local product, rejoined his former team.
Washington starter Trent Williams started serving a four-game suspension for violating the substance abuse policy, and Clausell was signed to add depth. He was undrafted, but he spent training camp with the Baltimore Ravens.
When the Ravens cut him, he joined the New England Patriots’ practice squad.
Gilberry, a former Baldwin County Tiger, signed with the Cincinnati Bengals, his team from 2012 to 2015. The Alabama standout joined the NFL back in 2008.
