What Is Former Georgia Tech DB Jerrard Tarrant Up To?

After leaving the Yellow Jacket program following his Redshirt Junior season, Jerrard Tarrant has struggled to catch on the in NFL.  He was invited to the New York Giants camp and played in all four preseason games but was cut by the team prior to the regular season. The Carrollton, Ga. native can still be found around Ga. Tech athletics events from time to time.

Tarrant has recently caught on with indoor football team in Dalton, Ga.
Jerrard Tarrant had not played organized football in three years.

But after returning to the field for the Georgia Rampage’s season opener last month, he didn’t appear to lose anything from his days playing for the Georgia Tech football team.
“He just knows where to be at all times,” Rampage coach Mark Bramblett said. “You can’t coach that. It’s just something they know. Not only can he cover good, but he can lower the boom on someone, too, when he needs to make a tackle.”
