Raiders bring back edge rusher Benson Mayowa on 1-year deal

New, 63 comments

Remember Benson Mayowa? He was the former undrafted guy the Raiders plucked off waivers from the Seahawks back in 2014 who spent two seasons in Oakland before leaving to sign a 3-year deal with the Cowboys. Well, he’s back according to multiple reports and first reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The 6-4, 265-pounder is a pass rusher, having put up 4.0 sacks last season for the Arizona Cardinals and 11 over the past three seasons for the Cardinals and Cowboys.

The 27-year-old doesn’t exactly solve their need at the edge rusher position, but he at least adds some depth to a position that had none. He joins second year man Arden Key, newly signed Josh Mauro, and recent former AAFer Alex Barrett at the position.
