Patriots' Obi Melifonwu: Signs with Patriots
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melifonwu signed a contract with the Patriots on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Melifonwu was waived from the Raiders' IR a couple weeks ago and he'll now operate as a depth safety in New England. A 2017 second-round pick, Melifonwu could prove to be another steal for the Patriots if he can flash the talent that made him such a high selection.

Raiders' Obi Melifonwu: Waived off IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melifonwu (undisclosed) was waived off injured reserve by the Raiders on Tuesday, Matt Schneidman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Melifonwu and the Raiders came to terms on an injury settlement, so he will now be free to find a new opportunity once his health is up to par. The 2017 second-round pick is surely looking for a fresh start, as Oakland never panned out.

Obi Melifonwu: Waived Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melifonwu (undisclosed) was waived with an injury designation on Thursday, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Melifonwu, the Raiders' second-round pick from a year ago, hasn't practiced since Aug. 6 due to his undisclosed ailment. His release corresponds with the signing of veteran cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. Melifonwu could be claimed in the waiver process, but if he's not he'll revert to the Raiders' IR.

Raiders' Obi Melifonwu: Still battling injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melifonwu continues to battle an undisclosed lower-body injury, the Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

While Melifonwu hasn't participated in practice since Aug. 6, the team has been less than forthcoming with the reason behind his absence. When healthy, he's expected to take aim at a 53-man spot after appearing in five games during 2017.

Raiders' Obi Melifonwu: Close to 100 percent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melifonwu (hip) participated in team drills at minicamp but still hasn't received full medical clearance, Matt Schneidman of the Mercury News reports.

Melifonwu is gradually working his way back from a hip injury that landed him on injured reserve last December. However, the fact he's returned to team drills suggests he's very close to being fully cleared. At this point it would be a surprise if he isn't full-go by the time training camp opens for veterans on July 26.
