Wednesday, was a busy news day involving the Las Vegas Raiders.
First, former coach Jon Gruden had a major win in his lawsuit against the NFL and then news broke that the Raiders were working out quarterback Colin Kaepernick after a six-year layoff from the league.
Then, shortly after, the Raiders made a minor signing, inking former Green Bay Packers defensive lineman Tyler Lancaster. Let’s take a look at him and what to expect from him:
He signed with the Packers in 2018 as an undrafted free agent. He spent some time on the practice squad. He was signed to the active roster as a rookie and played 59 games in green Bay, starting 21 games.
He’s a solid backup who is versatile and who has some burst. He has 1100 career tackles, with six tackles for loss and 1.5 career sacks.
He was in Green Bay with New Raiders’ defensive coordinator Patrick Graham in 2018.
What to expect in Las Vegas:
Lancaster is joining a crowded defensive line in Las Vegas. He may have a chance to be a back-of-the-rotation player.
