Raiders bring back five free agents

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

The Raiders have given out free agent tenders to five of their free agents, as reported by USA Today's Pelissero.

Offensive tackle Matt McCants, linebacker Kaelin Burnett, RB Jamize Olawale, and CB Brandian Ross, were going to be exclusive rights free agents and running back Jeremy Stewart would have become a restricted free agent.

McCants carries the lowest salary of the bunch at $495,000 but is probably the most valuable. He was a very strong addition to the offensive line this season, filling in an as injury replacement and even starting three games in place of starter, Tony Pashos. At 25 years of age, the former sixth round draft pick by the New York Giants could prove to be quite a find.

Ross started most of the season at strong safety in place of the injured Tyvon Branch. Kaelin Burnett plays primarily special teams while his brother Kevin starts at outside linebacker. Olawale and Stewart were reserve fullback and running back respectively.
