Shawn Oakman has hit another snag in his life. The once projected top NFL draft pick had his football career completely derailed after a fellow Baylor student accused him of rape back in 2016.
The case went to trial and Oakman was found not guilty, with the jury needing just 45 minutes to come to that conclusion. Still, that allegation cost him millions of dollars by not getting drafted into the NFL.
He would soon get his chance when he signed with the XFL’s Los Angeles Wildcats.
In a shocking move, Oakman found himself being cut by head coach Winston Moss and the LA Wildcats.
“The LA Wildcats are all about supporting each other and winning a Championship. We made a collective and joint decision that it was best to move on.”
Hopefully, he can land back on his feet.
