Raiders' Ryan Switzer: Making case for role
Switzer is making a case to earn a role on offense for Oakland, Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. "Ryan Switzer has really caught my eye," Raiders head coach Jon Gruden said. "Switzer has come in here and not only been a punt returner, kick returner, he's come in and been a force as a slot receiver. He's really done well."
The Raiders traded defensive lineman Jihad Ward to Dallas in April in exchange for Switzer, seemingly hoping for an easy fix to their struggles in the return game a season ago. The 2017 fourth-round pick still should get most of his snaps on special teams, but he also should have a chance to beat out Seth Roberts for the No. 4 wideout role. If that comes to fruition, Switzer could find himself getting regular playing time in the slot if Amari Cooper, Jordy Nelson or Martavis Bryant were to miss time.
