Raiders Sign Three Players, Cut Three

The Raiders have made a handful of roster moves today, signing three players and cutting three to make room, the team announced in a press release. The new additions are wide receiver David Gilreath, whose signing was reported earlier today, as well as wide receiver Rahsaan Vaughn and kicker/punter Michael Palardy. To clear spots on the roster, Oakland waived wide receivers Jared Green and Noel Grigsby, along with punter Daniel Zychlinski.

Like the Raiders’ longtime kicker Sebastian Janikowski, Palardy is a lefty, and played as both a kicker and punter at the University of Tennessee before going undrafted last month. Meanwhile, Vaughn signed as a rookie free agent with the Jets in 2013 out of Oregon, and spent a little time on the club’s practice squad during the season.

All three players cut by the Raiders will have to pass unclaimed through waivers before becoming unrestricted free agents.
