Raiders re-sign Brian Sanford, add two to practice squad

USA TODAY Sports

Once again, for the third time in four weeks, the Raiders complete the Brian Sanford, Jack Cornell shuffle. That shuffle consists of the team waives Sanford the day before the game to activate Cornell from the practice squad then waive Cornell the day after the game, re-sign Sanford, and place Cornell on the practice squad once he clears waivers.

This keeps happening because the Raiders' keep having offensive tackles go out injured and they need Cornell active to be the team's utility backup for the game. Sanford just ends up being the guy who gets the short end of the stick when that time comes each week.

Thus far it's worked out pretty well. Neither Sanford nor Cornell has been claimed by another team any of the times they've been waived and re-signed. The Raiders are hoping not to have to keep doing it but it is an option they have should they need it again.

The team also announced they've added LB/DE Chris McCoy to the practice squad.

McCoy was originally round seven draft pick by the Miami Dolphins in 2010. He was waived by the team following training camp that year. Since then he has spent time on practice squads for several teams including the Seattle Seahawks, Houston Texans, Pittsburgh Steelers, Philadelphia Eagles and Jacksonville Jaguars, as well as a stint with the Calgary Stampeders of the CFL where he spent the entire 2012 season.
