The Raiders today have signed a long snapper in wake of the debacle that ensued when Jon Condo went out of Monday's opener with a concussion. His name is Nick Guess. He played at Tennessee and was most recently with the Chargers (ironically).

Along with Guess, the team signed former Oregon defensive end Brandon Bair and brought back Coye Francies. Francies was originally claimed by the Raiders a couple weeks ago from the Seahawks. He played in the team's final preseason game against the Seahawks before the Raiders released him in their final roster cuts.

Bair was a standout for the Oregon Ducks at defensive end. He was a converted tight end. He was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Chiefs in 2011 and was on the roster last season. He was waived by the team in their final roster cuts.

With the new additions, the Raiders released wide receiver Brandon Carswell, defensive tackle Vaughn Meatoga, and the team's 2012 seventh round pick linebacker Nathan Stupar.
