Monday the Raiders were busy. They worked out 13 players, according to Adam Caplan. There was one cornerback among those workouts and it appears to have been Tevin Mitchell, of whom the team added to their practice squad Tuesday.
They also worked out four safeties, three linebackers, two tight ends, two wide receivers, and a quarterback.
There was no corresponding move to release anyone from the practice squad today as the team had a spot open from having called up linebacker Shilique Calhoun ten days ago.
Mitchel was a 6th round pick by Washington in the 2015 draft out of Arkansas. The 6-0, 190-pound corner suffered an injury as a rookie that had him wiaved/injured early in training camp. As it happens, cornerback David Amerson was waived by Washington a month and a half later. Now both are with the Raiders.
MItchel has not appeared in an NFL game. He spent the last two offseasons with the Colts and was on the team’s practice squad last season. He was waived on September 26.
