Raiders Sign OL Cameron Hunt, Waive OL Alex Officer

The Raiders have swapped one lineman for another. Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports (via Twitter) that the team has signed offensive guard Cameron Hunt. In a corresponding move, the Raiders waived linemanĀ Alex Officer (via Gehlken on Twitter).

Hunt, a 2017 undrafted free agent out of Oregon, spent last preseason with the Broncos. He ultimately landed on the 49ers practice squad in November, where he spent the rest of the season. The 23-year-old provides versatility on the right side of the offensive line, as he played both tackle and guard during his collegiate career. The Raiders are currently carrying 16 lineman, so it will still be a struggle for Hunt to make the team’s opening-day roster.

Officer joined the Raiders as an undrafted free agent immediately after the draft. The Pittsburgh product is the second rookie to be waived by Oakland prior to OTAs, joining fullbackĀ Nick Sharga.

Raiders Sign Six UDFAs

Amid a busy offseason that saw the Raiders bring in plenty of new faces via free agency, along with nine draft picks, the Silver and Black are lighter on undrafted free agents. But they did bring in six talents. Here’s the full rundown:

Piniero set the Florida record for field goal accuracy, making 38 of his 43 tries with the Gators — including 29 of his final 30. He’ll be set to compete with second-year kicker Giorgio Tavecchio. The Raiders gave Pineiro a $25K signing bonus, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com tweets.

Officer started 48 games at Pitt, at center and both guard spots, and joins a Raiders team that did not draft an interior lineman nor bring one in via free agency. Baugh started 29 games for the Buckeyes. He’ll attempt to make a Raiders team that has Jared Cook signed through only 2018 and blocking tight end Lee Smith entering his age-31 season. Oakland added Derek Carrier as a free agent.
