Alabama announced Wednesday that the four suspended and arrested Crimson Tide players are no longer members of the program. Linebacker Tyler Hayes, defensive lineman D.J. Pettway, defensive back Eddie Williams, and running back Brent Calloway are all gone.

The four players originally ran afoul of the law when they were arrested on Monday, February 11 for charges that included robbery and credit card fraud (Williams and Calloway were detained on both counts, Hays and Pettway only on the robbery), with the alleged victim claiming he'd suffered a bloody beatdown.

None of the four Alabama players had any significant role in the team's run to the 2013 BCS National Championship.

Elsewhere in personnel matters, Saban announced wide receiver Danny Woodson Jr. has been suspended due to a violation of team rules and wide receiver Marvin Shinn will not be participating in the team's offseason program.
