Cowser has signed a reserve/future contract with the Raiders, Matt Schneidman of The San Jose Mercury News reports. Cowser appeared in 22 games for Oakland between the 2016 and 2017 seasons, but the 28-year-old failed to make a single game appearance throughout 2018. It appears he'll now get another chance to earn a role in Oakland's linebacking corps, though Cowser's most probable outcome -- should he make the team out of training camp -- is likely contained to work on special teams.
Cowser was waived by the Raiders on Monday, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports. Cowser was waived by Oakland to begin the 2018 season, briefly rejoined the team in late October, and will ultimately be set loose once more to make room for Kony Ealy on the 53-man roster. If the depth defensive end goes unclaimed on waivers, he'll be a strong candidate to sign with the Raiders' practice squad.
Cowser was promoted from the practice squad to Oakland's active roster Tuesday. Cowser appeared in all 16 games for the Raiders in 2017, compiling 23 tackles and a forced fumble. He's spent most of the season on their practice squad.
Cowser has been signed to the Raiders' active roster, Adam Caplan of ESPN reports. Cowser's signing will add depth to the Raiders' pass-rushing depth.
