The Las Vegas Raiders got the roster down to 53 men on Tuesday, and on Wednesday, they started stacking talent for the practice squad.
After making the necessary cuts to get the roster down to 53, teams then have the chance to sign players on waivers to either the regular roster or their practice squad. Normally, these players will remain on the practice squad for most of the season, but on some occasions, those players find a way to impact their team unexpectedly.
So far, the Las Vegas Raiders have picked up a few players off of waiver, with almost all of them being roster cuts that the team made on Tuesday. They are doing their best to add the talent to the practice squad in the chance that injuries happen, which is more than likely being that the regular season will be 17 games in 2021.
Some of these names are familiar, being brought back after strong preseasons in the Silver and Black, while some are brand new in the organization. All told, Jon Gruden and Mike Mayock are very happy with the way the roster is shaping up, and some of these players added Wednesday could get their chance to play in the regular season sooner than others.
So, here is a look at some of those signings, if they will have any impact on the team.
