NFL: Oakland Raiders at Arizona Cardinals Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

With three spots to fill after the initial practice squad signings on Sunday, the Raiders finished filling out the 10-man squad with three additions today.

Along with bringing back guard Denver Kirkland, the Raiders added defensive backs Rico Gafford and Terrell Sinkfield.

Gafford is an undrafted rookie out of Wyoming. He was originally signed by the Tennessee Titans this offseason and was waived in the roster cuts this weekend. The 5-10, 184-pounder appeared in 27 games and made 23 starts over his two seasons at Wyoming totaling 103 tackles, six interceptions with one returned for a touchdown, and 11 passes defended.

Sinkfield is a 27-year-old cornerback originally signed as an undrafted free agent by the Dolphins in 2013. He has since spent time with the Green Bay Packers, Buffalo Bills, New York Giants, Minnesota Vikings, and New York Jets. For three seasons from 2014-16 he played in the Canadian Football League with the Toronto Argonauts and Hamilton Tiger-Cats. He spent time on the New York Jets practice squad last season and was waived in the roster cuts this weekend. He has never played in an NFL game.
