#Raiders releasing TE Gabe Holmes today, per source. Hoping to re-sign him to practice squad.— Eric Edholm (@Eric_Edholm) September 15, 2015
Holmes went undrafted out of Purdue and was the fourth tight end on the team. With the rash of injuries in the first game, namely to the safety position, his roster spot was one of those which was very much in question.
The 6-5, 260-pound tight end impressed the team in camp enough to have them keep four tight ends. With his release they hope to re-sign him to the practice squad.
