Scarbrough’s last NFL regular-season appearance came in 2020 with the Seattle Seahawks, his second stint with the club. He tore his hamstring in that game, landing him on injured reserve. Scarbrough was let go by the Seahawks after his practice squad contract expired. In August 2021, Scarbrough spent 10 days with the Las Vegas Raiders before being waived.
After 3 seasons at Alabama, Scarbrough decided to forego his senior year of eligibility and enter the 2018 NFL Draft. The Dallas Cowboys selected Scarbrough in the seventh round with the No. 236 overall pick. Scarbrough did not make the Cowboys roster out of camp and spent time on the team’s practice squad before an Oct. 9, 2018 release. Scarbrough spent time with Jacksonville and Seattle before eventually landing with the Detroit Lions in 2019. Scarborough played in 6 games, making 5 starts, for the Lions, recording 89 carries for 377 yards and a touchdown.
We’ll see if Scarbrough can turn his USFL opportunity into another chance to play in the NFL.
