Raiders waive three, sign two tryout players

David Purdy

The Raiders have signed two players who tried out during their rookie minicamp. This in addition to claiming wide receiver Greg Little from the Browns meant three other players were waived to make room on the roster.

The two tryout players the team signed were former Utah State linebacker Bojay Filimoeatu and former Iowa State cornerback Jansen Watson. In corresponding moves they waived CB Johnny Adams, LB Frank Beltre and recently signed undrafted free agent WR D.J. Coles.

The 5-9, 174-pound Watson was a fifth year senior for the Cyclones, starting 19 games over the past two seasons. Last season he had one interception, a team leading 8 passes defended, and 29 tackles over nine starts. His one interception last season was the only of his college career.

The 6-1, 258-pound Filmoeatu didn't play football last year as he recovered from a knee injury he suffered in a college All Star Game following his senior season. He started all 13 games as a senior in 2012 and finished the year with 71 tackles, 9 tackles for loss, and 5.0 sacks. He also had a team leading 11 quarterback hurries. He spent two seasons at Utah State, starting all 26 games. In that time he had 112 total tackles (48-solo), 20 tackles for loss, and 8.0 sacks.
