Las Vegas Raiders Report

All but 1 of the rookies drafted in this year’s draft made the 53 Man Roster, Elijah Hood. The Raiders are currently trying to keep him on the Practice Squad, however there are only 10 spots available and Hood is likely to be claimed off of waivers by another team. Remember Hood was so excited to be drafted by the Raiders and become teammates with Marshawn Lynch that he was in tears of joy. GM Reggie McKenzie surprised many by cutting Hood and last year’s 3rd round pick LB Shilique Calhoun. Cuts to Linebackers included Jelani Jenkins, Ben Heeney, Brady Sheldon, IK Enemkpali, LaTroy Lewis, Najee Harris, Rufus Johnson, Xavier Woodson-Luster, and Shilique. This leaves the roster very thin at Linebacker with only Nick Morrow, James Cowser, Bruce Irvin, Marquel Lee, Cory James, and Tyrell Adams. McKenzie has to be thinking of adding at least 1 veteran middle linebacker soon right?
