The Raiders have made a handful of roster moves, claiming defensive back Tramain Jacobs and linebacker Lenny Jones off waivers from the Giants and 49ers, respectively, and waiving defensive end Damontre Moore and cornerback SaQwan Edwards, tweets Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle.
Moore is easily the most notable player of the group, having racked up 9.5 sacks over the previous two seasons. The 23-year-old entered the NFL in 2013 as a Giants third-round pick and was with the club until last December, when it waived him after a dispute over headphones with teammate Cullen Jenkins. Moore, who had picked up three sacks to that point, then joined the Dolphins via waivers. After making three appearances and recording a sack in Miami, Moore ended up back on waivers in May. He signed with the Raiders a week later, but his Silver and Black tenure didn’t even last three months.
Jacobs, who was Moore’s teammate at Texas A&M and last season in New York, is the only other member of this foursome who has played in an NFL game. The 24-year-old registered a combined eight appearances in stints with the Ravens and Giants.
