    Raiders' Rashaan Melvin: Paces team in tackles

    Rashaan Melvin registered a team-high 12 tackles (11 solo) Monday in the Oakland Raiders' 27-13 win over the Broncos.It was a rather anomalous tackle output for the cornerback, who had recorded more than four stops on only two other occasions this season. As a result, he's probably not worth considering as an IDP option in Week 17 in Kansas City, with safeties Karl Joseph, Marcus Gilchrist and Erik Harris looking like more appealing options among the Oakland secondary players.

    Raiders' Rashaan Melvin: Finds home in Oakland

    The Oakland Raiders and Rashaan Melvin came to agreement on a one-year, $6.5 million contract Friday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.Oft-injured during his five pro seasons, Melvin is coming off the healthiest stretch of his career, playing 25 games the past two years with the Colts after logging time in just 12 prior to that. He produced modest results on the field -- 96 tackles and three interceptions -- and should slot in as a starting cornerback in the Raiders defense. Expect Melvin to line up opposite 2017 first-round pick Gareon Conley.

    Colts' Rashaan Melvin: Placed on IR

    The Indianapolis Colts placed Rashaan Melvin (hand) on injured reserve Wednesday.Melvin has acted as the No. 1 cornerback for an injury-ravaged Colts secondary for much of the season, but he's been sidelined the past four weeks with a dislocated metatarsal on his left hand and didn't make enough progress in his recovery to gain clearance for the Week 17 matchup with the Texans. With Melvin unavailable for the season finale, Kenny Moore, Quincy Wilson and Nate Hairston should serve as the team's primary corners.
