70. Dewey McDonald
A former UDFA, safety Dewey McDonald has spent his career in the NFL bouncing around practice squads. Playing in just 14 games over the past three seasons spent between the Indianapolis Colts and the New England Patriots.
McDonald’s best season came in his rookie year with the Colts, playing a depth role where he featured in 12 regular season games and all three of the Colts playoff games in their run to the AFC Championship Game that year.
2015 would be a stepback for McDonald as he was waived by the Colts in September, eventually heading to New England where he was waived yet again. Sending McDonald to Oakland where he will be looking for a third opportunity at cracking a roster full time.
After bouncing around two teams in two seasons, it is clear McDonald is a depth player at the NFL level. The question will be if the Raiders coaching staff likes his effort enough to give him one of the last spots on the roster to play special teams and fill in when needed at safety.
