The Raiders Saturday signed their first four players to the team's 2012 practice squad. LB Kaelin Burnett, WR Brandon Carswell, WR Travionte Session and LB Nathan Stupar have been added to the practice squad after being waived in Friday's active-roster reduction to 53 players.
Burnett, Carswell, Session were all undrafted free agents this year for the Raiders. Stupar was the team's seventh round pick. Burnett played at Nevada, posted four tackles in four preseason games with the Raiders.
It's a chance for Carswell to stay at home. He is a native of Milpitas and played college ball at USC. Session, played college ball at Nevada just over the border in Reno Nevada.
Stupar, was the Raiders' final draft choice this season out of Penn State. He had a great final game of the preseason, logging 11 tackles, three tackles for loss, and one sack.
There are still four spots available on the Raiders' practice squad so we can expect the team to announce those soon as well.
