Raiders add three free agents

Kirby Lee-US PRESSWIRE

The Raiders have been busy this week filling out their squad with reserve/future contracts. Wednesday they signed several players from the practice squad. Thursday they add three free agents as well.

The Raiders tried out several free agents this week and signed three of them to reserve/future contracts. Those players are RB Jon Hoese, NT Johnny Jones, and WR Isaiah Williams to reserve/future contracts, the team announced Thursday.

Both Hoese and Jones were former Green Bay Packers. Signing former Packers has become a trend since Reggie McKenzie joined the Raiders after 18 years in Green Bay.

The 6-foot-2, 247-pound Hoese was in training camp with the Green Bay Packers in 2012. He was originally signed by the Packers as an undrafted free agent out of Minnesota, and spent time on Green Bay's practice squad in 2011. In case you were wondering, his last name is pronounced HAZE-ee.

Jones plays is a nose tackle by trade. The 6-foot-4, 317-pound Jones was with the Packers for the past two seasons. He spent the majority of the 2011 season on Green Bay's practice squad and was placed on injured reserve during the 2012 preseason. Jones originally signed with the Miami Dolphins as an undrafted free agent out of Marshall in 2011.

Williams, a 6-foot-2, 204-pound receiver, spent time on the Arizona Cardinals' practice squad in 2012. He, like Hoese and Jones, entered the league as an undrafted free agent. He was originally signed by the Ravens and spent has been with four different teams including the Steelers and Seahawks. He entered the league in 2009 out of University of Maryland, where he was teammates with current Raiders WR Darrius Heyward-Bey.
