Lamur was claimed off waivers by the Jets on Wednesday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Lamur was waived by the Raiders on Tuesday after playing only five defensive snaps in the last two games and was a healthy scratch in the previous three. The 29-year-old has 13 tackles (11 solo) and should serve in a depth role at inside linebacker in New York.
Lamur was waived by the Raiders on Tuesday.
Lamur had played just five total defensive snaps throughout the Raiders' last six games, indicating a lack of involvement while he primarily spent time on special teams. The former Viking and Bengal will look to sign elsewhere for the remaining two weeks of the regular season.
Lamur agreed to a contract Wednesday with the Raiders, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
Lamur spent time with both Minnesota and Cincinnati over the past five seasons before making the switch to silver and black. The 28-year-old suited up for all 16 regular-season contests with the Vikings a season ago, but saw limited action. He likely won't be in the mix for a starting role in his new destination and should see most of his snaps on special teams.
Lamur recorded 17 tackles (nine solo) in 16 games for the Vikings in 2017.
Lamue totaled 30 tackles (14 solo) in two seasons with Minnesota, primarily serving as a special teams contributor. The 28-year-old will enter the 2018 season as an unrestricted free agent.
Lamur (foot) is officially active for Sunday's game against the Bengals.
Lamur was a limited participant Thursday and Friday, but will play through the injury and will continue the streak of not missing a game since 2014. The 28-year-old should maintain his usual role as a special teams contributor.
Lamur (foot) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals.
Lamur hasn't missed a game since the 2014 season, but looks at risk of having that streak come to an end Sunday. He was sporting a walking boot following the Week 14 loss to the Panthers and was limited in practicing Thursday and Friday, suggesting he's no lock to suit up against Cincinnati. In any event, since most of Lamur's work comes on special teams, his potential absence wouldn't create any ripples in IDP formats.
Lamur (foot) was wearing a walking boot following Sunday's loss to the Panthers, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Lamur also was seen using crutches postgame, but there's no other indication as to the severity of the injury at this point. The 28-year-old's status for Week 15 likely will be unclear until Wednesday when the Vikings resume practice.
Lamur is out for the rest of Sunday's game against the Panthers with a foot injury, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Lamur's main contributions are on special teams, as he has just 12 tackles (eight solo) and one fumble recovery through 12 games. He'll have one week to get healthy and avoid missing his first game since the 2014 campaign.
Lamur (concussion) is not listed on the Vikings' injury report Thursday.
Lamur exited the Vikings third preseason game with concussion-like symptoms and did not play in the preseason finale against the 49ers. The 28-year-old will most likely be a depth linebacker for Mike Zimmer and the Vikings this season.
Lamur did not return to Sunday's preseason game after exiting for a concussion evaluation.
Based on the fact that he was downgraded to out, it's reasonable to speculate that Lamur did suffer a concussion. The team likely won't confirm for some time, but he'll have to go through the league's mandated protocol before returning to the field, a process that can take weeks. Lamur is expected to function as a depth linebacker this season for the Vikings. It's unlikely that this injury will cost him a roster spot, but stranger things have happened.
Lamur had three total tackles and played 16 snaps on defense in Sunday's loss to Detroit.
Lamur had played just six snaps on defense in eight games before Sunday, but saw action with Eric Kendricks out with a concussion.
Lamur had a tackle while playing six snaps on defense in Sunday's win at Carolina.
Lamur has two tackles this season as he's getting almost all his playing time on special teams. He'll have a depth role at linebacker.
The Vikings signed Lamur on Wednesday, the team's official site reports.
After his second NFL season was wiped away by a shoulder injury, Lamur served as a starting outside linebacker in Cincinnati in 2014, racking up 91 tackles (53 solo) and two interceptions in 14 games. However, he was relegated to reserve duty and special teams snaps last year, when he fell back to 40 tackles, one forced fumble, and one fumble recovery. Upon joining the Vikings, he could compete for another top role at OLB with Chad Greenway.
The Bengals re-signed restricted free-agent linebacker Emmanuel Lamur to a one-year tender offer Wednesday, the team announced.
The team had previously placed a second-round tender on Lamur. In 14 games during the 2014 season, Lamur recorded 91 tackles and two interceptions.
The Bengals extended a second-round tender to restricted free agent linebacker Emmanuel Lamur, according to ESPN's Field Yates. He will make $2.356 million next year with the Bengals in 2015, unless a team offers a second-round pick.
Lamur, 25, racked up 91 tackles and picked off two passes last season. He has posted 110 tackles in two seasons in the NFL.

Bengals running back Giovani Bernard (ribs) and all the team's other probables are active for Sunday's Week 8 matchup against the Ravens.
