With the releases of quarterback Josh Johnson and punter Colby Wadman, the Raiders had two roster spots open. Monday they filled those roster spots with two more undrafted rookies.
They added former Utah State safety Dallin Leavitt and former Kansas State long snapper Drew Scott. Both players tried out for the team during rookie minicamp earlier this month.
Leavitt played two seasons at Utah State after transferring from BYU, appearing in a total of 45 games with 26 starts. The 5-foot-10, 205-pounder totaled 211 tackles (121 solo), seven interceptions, eight passes defensed and 1.5 sacks over his career.
Scott played four years at Kansas State, seeing action in 31 career games and serving as the team’s primary long snapper in each of the final 26 games of his collegiate career. He finished his career with four special teams tackles.
This makes five players signed from tryouts, for a total of 11 undrafted rookies signed since the draft in which they added 9 players.
