The Las Vegas Raiders have made the following roster moves on Tuesday to get the team within the NFL-mandated 80-player limit on their active roster.
The team waved wide receiver Marcell Ateman, a three-year pro out of Oklahoma State. Rookie defensive tackle Darius Stills was waived/injured and linebacker Darron Lee was placed on the reserve/injured list.
Stills could be part of additional roster moves
Stills was an undrafted free agent who made his season debut just three days ago against the Rams. His designation as a waived/injured means other teams can claim him, but if they don’t he could return to the Raiders and either get an injury settlement or be placed on injured reserve.
Stills played in college at West Virginia and compiled 25 tackles with 3.5 sacks and 7.5 tackles for loss in a 10-game season. He also had an interception.
Ateman caught two passes for 45 yards and a touchdown in the game against the Rams. He was the team’s seventh round pick in 2018. During his three years with the team, he caught 20 passes for 270 yards and a touchdown in 18 regular season games.
Lee was a former first round pick of the Jets in 2016. He played for the Bills last season, getting in two games.
The Raiders will finish their preseason schedule on Sunday on the road taking on the San Francisco 49ers.
