Days after the Raiders lost fifth round pick Neiron Ball to an apparent knee injury, there were working out a couple of linebackers in the hopes of adding some depth at the position. Those linebackers are former Seahawks fifth round pick Korey Toomer and undrafted rookie linebacker Dyshawn Davis according to Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post. They then signed Toomer to the team's practice squad.

Toomer's addition seems fairly obvious. Seattle took him in the fifth round out of Idaho in 2012 under Ken Norton Jr's watch. He didn't appear in a single game for the Seahawks in two seasons there and last season appeared in 8 games for the Cowboys and Rams, all on special teams.

Toomer has one career tackle and it came last season for the Rams in their 52-0 beat down of the Raiders in week 13. He was on the Rams roster this preseason when they faced the Raiders but didn't play.

In addition to the signing of Toomer, the team added rookie Tevin McDonald back to the practice squad and placed safety Keenan Lamert on injured reserve.
