The Raiders’ practice squad is nearly filled, as the team has brought back three players they cut yesterday.

Rico Gafford stood out in preseason with his blazing speed, catching a deep touchdown from Mike Glennon against the Cardinals. He also pounced on a Keon Hatcher fumble that helped seal the win against the Packers.

Quinton Bell has rare athletic talent, but could definitely use more time to develop as a pass-rusher after converting from receiver in college. He was very raw in preseason, but the talent is there.

Mabin will find it difficult to break into Oakland’s secondary rotation, but a team can never have too many cornerbacks. Keisean Nixon made the team straight up, but Mabin is quality depth to keep around.
