The Raiders’ practice squad is now up to five players, with the additions of two more offensive guys.

Saubert is a 6’5” tight end who was drafted in 2017 by the Falcons in the fifth round and spent last year with the Patriots before getting cut yesterday.

Crockett rushed six times for 24 yards and a touchdown in the Texans’ first preseason game, though he was passed over by Houston in favor of Karan Higdon. Crockett rushed for 709 yards and seven touchdowns as a junior, and as a freshman set the Missouri freshman rushing record with 1,062 yards and 10 scores. He has loads of talent and could benefit from some development time on a practice squad.
