The Las Vegas Raiders have claimed guard Jordan Roos, meaning that even as they must cut down to 80 players by Tuesday, they liked a player who was recently waived a bit more than someone already on the roster.

Roos played at Purdue and went undrafted in 2017, signing with the Seattle Seahawks. Measuring at 6’3, 302 pounds and running a 5.22 40-yard dash at the 2017 NFL Scouting Combine, Roos impressed Seattle coaches and made the final 53-man roster as a rookie. However, he has spent most of his career on the Seahawks practice squad and been unable to crack the starting lineup for any regular season game thus far in three years and Seattle waived him over the weekend as they get down to 80 players.

The Raiders don’t have any obvious needs at guard but offensive line coach Tom Cable worked with Roos on the Seahawks in 2017.
