New, comments

The offseason has officially began for the Raiders and that means more planning for 2017. With that, they brought back 9 players who were on the team’s practice squad last season on reserve/future contracts.

The nine players are:

layer Pos. Ht. Wt. Exp. College

Jimmy Bean DE 6-5 250 R Oklahoma State

K.J. Brent WR 6-3 202 R Wake Forest

Demetrius Cherry DL 6-6 300 R Arizona State

Kenneth Durden CB 6-1 182 R Youngstown State

Cooper Helfet TE 6-3 240 3 Duke

Jaydon Mickens WR 5-10 174 R Washington

Ryan O’Malley TE 6-6 258 R Pennsylvania

Oni Omoile G 6-2 310 R Iowa State

Ian Silberman G 6-5 305 2 Boston College

Seven of the nine players returning were rookies in 2016. While the Raiders had seven other undrafted rookies on the active roster, either making the team out of camp, or called up to the active roster during last season.

Some notable reserve/future signings in recent years include Seth Roberts and Neiko Thorpe.
