The 2021 NFL draft is winding down but that doesn’t mean the rookie player addition period is over.
It’s about to get busy, again. As soon as the draft is over, the race for undrafted free agents will begin. Really, it has already started. Teams are already discussing UDFA deals with players in case they are not drafted.
The Las Vegas Raiders are, undoubtedly, already talking to potential free-agent additions. The actual signing process starts as soon as the draft is over and will continue for the next several days.
While these players aren’t heralded, several undrafted free agents make impacts every year. So, Mike Mayock and his continuing department takes this part of the post-draft process very seriously.
Below is our reported Raiders’ undrafted free agent tracker. It will be updated as the news comes in. Remember, nothing is official until the team announces it.
Every year, a few players agree to terms with a team and then signs elsewhere because a better deal emerges.
