In 2021, Cabinda appeared in 14 games and made four starts at fullback, and also contributed on special teams, making seven tackles. Cabinda has also made an impact off the field, with his efforts in the community earning him Detroit’s Walter Payton Man of the Year nomination.
At Penn State, Cabinda played a key role in Penn State’s 2016 Big Ten Championship team, as well as the 2017 squad that went 11-2 and beat Washington in the Fiesta Bowl. He started his NFL career with the (then) Oakland Raiders in 2018 before moving to Detroit in 2019.
Terms of Cabinda’s contract have yet to be revealed.
