Raiders Claim DT Joe Cohen, Waive CB Jason Horton

Raider fans, your prayers have been answered.....sort of: The Raiders have acquired a new defensive tackle.

The Oakland Raiders Transactions page indicates that the Raiders have claimed defensive tackle Joe Cohen off waivers and waived/injured CB Jason Horton.

Cohen was a 4th round draft pick of the San Francisco 49ers in 2007, spent 2007 and the 2008 preseason with the Niners before being released and signed by the Miami Dolphins. Cohen played sparingly with the Dolphins, and was released yesterday.

It is unclear what Cohen's role will be for the last two weeks of the preseason. Does he have a chance to overtake Terdell Sands for the backup nose tackle job, or is he simply a camp body to keep starters fresh and healthy through these last two weeks? It will be interesting to see what Coach Cable has to say about the acquisition tomorrow.
