Tyler Wilson, Michael Bush among former Raiders in veteran combine

The inaugural veteran combine is this year. It happens on March 22 and will feature NFL veterans who will be attempting to show off their talents for team scouts just as the NFL draft scouting combine does each year.

Among those who will be attending are a few players who once donned a Raiders uniform. Most notably, former Raiders draft picks Michael Bush and Tyler Wilson. Others include Torell Troupe, Akwasi Owusu Ansah, and Raiders former undrafted free agent signing, Thomas Mayo -- all of whom once spent training camp with the Raiders.

Bush was a 4th round pick by the Raiders in 2008 and spent the first four years of his career in Oakland. He nearly reached 1000 yards (977) in 2011 and then was allowed to leave as a free agent where he was signed by the Bears. He spent two seasons in Chicago, then was signed by the Cardinals but didn't play a down last season. He is now 30 years old and hoping to show teams he's still got it.

Wilson was the Raiders' fourth round pick in 2013. He was surpassed on the depth chart in camp by Matt McGloin and then didn't even make the team out of camp. He spent some time on the practice squad and eventually was picked up by the Titans and never played a down of regular season football.

Other notable names who will be showing their wares at the veteran combine include Adam Carricker, Mike Golic Jr, Felix Jones, Mike Kafka, Mikel Leshoure, Michael Sam, and Darron Thomas.
