  • Ukeme Eligwe: Cut loose

    Eligwe was waived by the Raiders on Monday.

    Eligwe decided to opt out of the 2020 campaign, and the team has elected to part ways with the linebacker now that the season is over. He'll search for a new squad following this latest transaction, though he hasn't taken the field in an NFL game since 2018.

  • Raiders' Ukeme Eligwe: Opts out of season

    Eligwe elected to opt out of the 2020 season Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    The 26-year-old didn't suit up for any regular-season action in 2019 for the Raiders after signing with the club in December. Eligwe's most recent regular-season action came in 2018 as a member of the Giants, during which he compiled seven tackles (four solo) across 10 games.

  • Ukeme Eligwe: Joins Raiders' active roster

    Eligwe signed with Oakland on Thursday.

    Eligwe's role with the Raiders over the season's final two games remains unclear, but don't expect the 25-year-old linebacker to alter fantasy fortunes all that much. Eligwe's most recent regular-season action came in 2018 as a member of the Giants, where he compiled seven tackles (four solo) across 10 games. If Kyle Wilber (ankle) can't go Sunday, look for Eligwe to absorb some defensive snaps in his place.

  • Ukeme Eligwe: Let go by Giants

    Eligwe was waived by the Giants on Monday.

  • Giants' Ukeme Eligwe: Promoted to 53-man roster

    Eligwe was added to the Giants' active roster Tuesday, Michael Eisen of reports.

    The Giants added Eligwe to the active roster to add depth at the linebacker position after they placed fellow linebacker Ray-Ray Armstrong (concussion) on injured reserve Tuesday. Eligwe, a 2017 fifth-round pick, spent the first six weeks of 2018 on the Giants' practice squad and appeared in 14 games last season for Kansas City, recording five tackles (five solo) and one sack.

  • Chiefs' Ukeme Eligwe: Plays in preseason Week 2

    Eligwe (foot) totaled three tackles (all solo) while playing 24 defensive and five special teams snaps in Friday's preseason game against the Falcons.

    Eligwe is taking aim at a 53-man roster spot as a reserve at middle linebacker again after appearing in 14 games in that role last season. The second-year linebacker likely sits in good position to do so, assuming his foot issue is behind him.

  • Chiefs' Ukeme Eligwe: Misses practice Monday

    Eligwe did not participate in Monday's practice due to a foot strain, Matt McMullen of reports.

    Eligwe's foot injury doesn't appear to be too serious, but the Chiefs elected to keep the second-year linebacker sidelined Monday. Eligwe may struggle to make the 53-man roster if he's out for an extended period of time, however, while Dorian O'Daniel and Terrance Smith figure to see additional reps at inside linebacker in the meantime.

  • Chiefs' Ukeme Eligwe: Scooped up by Kansas City

    The Chiefs selected Eligwe in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 183rd overall.

    Eligwe fills a definite need for the Chiefs with veteran Derrick Johnson coming off his second Achilles injury. He started his career at Florida State and was a member of the Seminoles' national championship team, but finished his career at Georgia Southern after being dismissed from FSU. He was a standout player while at Georgia Southern and was able to resurrect his draft stock. He'll likely start out as a special teamer, but his tape from college shows that Eligwe has the potential to develop into a linebacker in the NFL.
