MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Former Alabama State offensive tackle Jylan Ware officially signed the dotted line to join the Oakland Raiders Friday afternoon.
The Valley native was drafted in the seventh-round as the 231st overall pick and is the first Hornets football player to be drafted since Michael Coe back in 2007.
"I'm very excited that I have signed with the [Oakland] Raiders," said Ware. "A lifetime of work that came down to that moment. It's only the start though. Signing means it's the beginning of the work, not the end."
