LAS VEGAS, Nev. – The Las Vegas Raiders announced on Monday that they have waived seven players, including former Utah State kicker Dominik Eberle.

The former Aggies placekicker signed with the Raiders shortly after the 2020 NFL Draft and joined Las Vegas as an undrafted free agent.

Eberle, a native of Nuremberg, Germany, left Logan as the owner of six single-season school records at Utah State.

The kicker broke Aggie records in his career with 359 points scored, an average of 8.34 points per game, 64 made field goals, 167 extra points made, and 167 extra points attempted.

Eberle never missed a PAT during his time at Utah State going 167 for 167 on extra points.

He also owns a portion of an NCAA record. Eberle became the sixth player in college football history to kick three 50-plus yard field goals in a game when the Aggies played against New Mexico State in 2018.

Eberle finished his USU career connecting on 64 of his 81 field goal attempts.

The other players the Raiders waived on Monday included defensive back Jordan Brown, tight end Paul Butler, center Erik Magnuson, long snapper Liam McCullough and wide receiver Anthony Ratliff-Williams. Linebacker Marquel Lee was waived after failing a physical.

The Raiders also placed two players on the reserve/opt out list. Those players included cornerback D.J. Killings and defensive end Jeremiah Valoaga.
