The Raiders effectively converted over $7 million of Hudson's 2018 base salary into a bonus. This move gives a team without much cap space some breathing room for future contract negotiations. Named to the Pro Bowl each of the past two seasons, Hudson will start at center along a strong Oakland offensive line, one that added offensive tackle Kolton Miller (UCLA) in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft.
DePaolo is a vested veteran who isn't subject to the waiver wire. Thus, he's immediately eligible to sign with another team.
Just a day after Oakland signed fellow tight end Derek Carrier, the team brings back it's top blocking tight end from a season ago in Lee. Carrier also projects as a blocking specialist, so Jared Cook remains the Raiders' most legitimate receiving threat from the position.
Nelson suffered a torn meniscus during a pre-draft workout and was sidelined earlier this summer as a result, but he's since returned to full activity at training camp as he competes for the nickel cornerback spot. The fourth-rounder has strength and size on his side in the nickel position at 5-foot-11 and 200 pounds.
Nelson has racked up 44 tackles through eight games this season, but the Raiders' starting free safety has yet to force a single turnover. As a result, his IDP value has been somewhat limited while Oakland has unexpectedly struggled to a 3-5 start. Nelson will look to snag the first interception of his 2017 campaign in Week 9 against the Dolphins, who plan to be led by quarterback Jay Cutler (ribs).
Pineiro was unable to play Saturday after tweaking his groin during Wednesday's practice, while additional updates regarding his status should become available within the next couple days. The rookie had an upper leg on the kicking competition over Mike Nugent prior to his injury, but the latter connected on his lone field-goal attempt from 31 yards Saturday.
Richard was unproductive as a ball carrier, averaging just 2.6 yards per rush with a long run of five yards. However, he made up for it in the passing game as a viable receiver out of the backfield. Fellow backup running backs Chris Warren and DeAndre Washington combined for 124 rushing yards on just 19 carries, which somewhat hurts Richard's positioning in the battle for a roster spot behind starter Marshawn Lynch. However, he still has a trio of preseason games during which he can make an impression.
Edwards has missed 18 games in three seasons since Oakland made him a second-round selection in 2015. Even when healthy, the Florida State product hasn't provided the type of impact the team likely expected from him, notching just 5.5 sacks and 71 tackles in 30 games. The Raiders could save over $1.2 million in cap space by letting him go, though the team would likely need to feel very comfortable with offseason defensive end pickups Frostee Rucker and Tank Carradine to do so.
Hamilton had arthroscopic knee surgery on a torn meniscus a little over a month ago, but he appears to be nearing a return. If the Raiders choose to move him to the active roster, he will be eligible to return for the Week 14 matchup with the Chiefs. Look for more updates on his status to come over the next couple of weeks.
James has been troubled by knee issues all season and missed the Raiders' last two games before being shut down for good. While James was sidelined the past two games, Morrow has risen to the forefront, producing 16 tackles and holding his own in coverage. Morrow could be worth a look in deeper IDP settings down the stretch now that he has a clear path to heavy snaps.
Sharpe entered the weekend with a questionable designation after the illness prevented him from practicing Thursday, but his health took a turn for the better over the weekend. He'll start at left tackle in the season finale.
McDonald entered Week 17 nursing a knee injury but injured his ankle in the first half Sunday. Sean Smith should step in as the team's nickel cornerback, and Antonio Hamilton also likely will see increased snaps while McDonald is sidelined.
Luani is a former soccer player who showed a bit of a center fielder skill set at Washington State, intercepting four passes each of the last two years. Oakland is set at safety, so he'll try to make a special teams impact.
Vanderdoes did not participate in minicamp in June, so it shouldn't come as a major surprise that his offseason continues to stall on the way back from a major knee injury last December. It was noted in mid-March that he's made some progress in his recovery, but there's no definitive timetable for Vanderdoes' return at this point.
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.
Wilber did not practice Wednesday and Thursday before finishing the week with a limited session. Fellow reserve linebacker Justin Durant (groin) is also listed as questionable, which could leave Jaylon Smith and Justin March-Lillard as the only reserve linebackers should Wilber and Durant be unable to play.
Calhoun has been on the Raiders' practice squad since being waived at the end of the preseason. The 25-year-old could potentially see more defensive opportunities with Cory James (knee) questionable for Sunday and Marquel Lee out with an ankle injury.
Athleticism has always been Cook's calling card, dating back to his 4.50 40-yard dash at the 2009 NFL Combine. Gruden may be impressed, but he also has a long history of primarily using his tight ends as blockers. No tight end in a Gruden offense has ever reached 600 receiving yards, a mark Cook hit for the fourth time in his career last season. While still locked in as the Raiders' top pass catcher at his position, Cook may lose snaps to blocking specialists Lee Smith and Derek Carrier on early downs. There's also a bit more competition for targets, with Jordy Nelson and Martavis Bryant replacing the departed Michael Crabtree at wide receiver.
Gilchrist has been sidelined for two weeks now with a foot injury that was originally believed to be minor. The defensive back appears set to finally make his return to the practice field Monday and with that, he should be in line to play in Friday's preseason game against the Packers.
Cook led the Raiders offense for five drives during the team's first preseason tilt, while three of those possessions ultimately resulted in scores. His impressive performance was highlighted by a seven-yard touchdown connection with slot receiver Ryan Switzer as the Silver and Black took a two-possession lead in the second quarter. Cook's productivity ultimately earned him second-team reps in Monday's practice, but he fell back to earth and struggled throughout the session, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports. Cook threw a handful of errant throws and muffed a red-zone snap, resulting in second-team reps for EJ Manuel at the end of practice. Consider the battle for Derek Carr's primary backup spot between Connor Cook and EJ Manuel still very much alive heading into the team's second preseason contest against the Rams on Saturday.
Among his five snaps in the Raiders' exhibition opener, Nelson was targeted twice by Derek Carr, corralling one of them for four yards. The Raiders are scratching a number of stalwarts on both sides of the ball Saturday, so Nelson should receive his most preseason action Friday against his old team, the Packers.
Mauger has found a new home with the Raiders a couple of months after being handed his walking papers by the Falcons. The second-year pro will look to secure a backup safety role and a spot on the special teams unit for the 2018 campaign.
Whitehead is coming off of a strong 2017 season in which he lead the Lions in tackles with 110, including a sack. He was one of the best linebackers in the NFL and the Raiders will be hoping the 27-year-old -- who can play both on the inside and outside -- keeps up the run of strong play. Per the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Whitehead's new contract is a three-year pact worth more than $6 million annually.
Rucker comes to Oakland after spending five seasons with Arizona, having averaged 21 tackles per season and only once topping three sacks in a single campaign. The Raiders don't have much depth at defensive end, so it's possible the 12-year vet could work with the first-team offense right away while star defensive end Khalil Mack holds out for an extension.
Gruden seems to be indirectly hinting that Martin will have a spot on the 53-man roster. The 29-year-old back took one carry for three yards in Oakland's preseason opener, but then was held out -- along with a slew of other veterans -- for Saturday's loss to the Rams. Gruden likely wants to use the third preseason game to evaluate Jalen Richard, DeAndre Washington and Chris Warren. Marshawn Lynch's status as the lead back is the only true piece of clarity in the Oakland backfield.
Brown was sidelined during Wednesday's practice but appeared to jump right back into the swing of things. Undrafted out of Mississippi in 2017, Fadol is looking to earn a role as a reserve defensive lineman with Oakland and make his NFL debut in 2018.
Richardson is headed into his fifth NFL season and has yet to record an NFL snap. If he reaches an injury settlement, he'll be free to sign with another team.
Aboushi finished the 2017 campaign on injured reserve due to a shoulder injury, but his signing with the Raiders suggests he's passed a physical and is ready to contribute for his new club. The 27-year-old lineman is expected to provide depth for the Raiders along the line this season after making eight starts for Seattle in 2017.
Gruden said the same of Doug Martin, hinting that the coach wants to use Friday's contest to sort out the battle between Jalen Richard, DeAndre Washington and Chris Warren for what likely will be one or two roster spots. Lynch had his only carry in the first week of the preseason -- a 60-yard touchdown -- wiped out by a holding penalty, and he didn't play at all in Saturday's loss to the Rams. The aforementioned long run suggests he's already geared up for Week 1.
Harris was sidelined during the Raiders' preseason opener Friday due to an undisclosed injury, but he's back on the practice field Monday. He'll continue to compete for a spot on the 53-man roster as a return specialist, so don't expect the eighth-year veteran to provide much fantasy value as a receiver.
Nugent took the only attempt of the game for the Raiders since Eddy Pineiro didn't make the trip due to a groin injury. The Raiders signed the veteran kicker to battle Pineiro, an undrafted rookie, after they cut Giorgio Tavecchio. Although Nugent is a legitimate contender for the job, the 13-year age difference between the two makes it Pineiro's job to lose.
After missing part of June's minicamp with a groin strain, Conley then strained a hip in his first day of team drills during training camp, and the defensive back had been out of commission for roughly two weeks before returning Monday. Conley's taken part in each of Oakland's last three practices, though, and the 2017 first-rounder is now back on track to play a key role in an underwhelming Raiders secondary this season.
Jackson was forced to exit Thursday's practice prematurely due to an undisclosed reason, but he's slated to miss little time. Expect Jackson to take reps with the first-team offense at right guard upon his return to full strength.
This deal won't become official until the league's new year starts Wednesday. Carrier played 14 games for the Rams in 2017, but he hauled in just eight passes for 71 yards and zero touchdowns, while getting just one target in the red zone. He'll likely slot in behind veteran Jared Cook, who had 54 receptions for 688 yards and two touchdowns in 2017, in Oakland's depth chart.
Smith heads out to Oakland on a big raise after spending his first fours seasons in Dallas. He has eight receptions for 46 yards over the past two seasons but could potentially see an expanded role on offense in his new home. Smith's main job will be paving the way for Marshawn Lynch and Doug Martin, who the Raiders inked to a one-year deal Thursday.
Victor likely tweaked his ankle during Friday's training camp session, while the Raiders elected to keep him sidelined Saturday as a precaution. The sixth-rounder faces an uphill battle for playing time at middle linebacker, as he currently stands behind Tahir Whitehead, Derrick Johnson and Marquel Lee on the depth chart.
A 2014 fourth-round selection, Ellis only has one-half of a sack in 60 NFL games, but he's made 41 starts and piled up 112 tackles, including a career-best 48 last season. He'll likely continue in his role as Oakland's starting nose tackle, exiting the field for most passing downs.
Washington, who averaged 6.3 yards per carry Friday, also forced two missed tackles in just six rushes and had 5.3 yards after contact per attempt according to Pro Football Focus. Washington is entrenched in a four-man battle for three roster spots at running back behind starter Marshawn Lynch, with Doug Martin, Jalen Richard and Chris Warren on hand as Washington's competition.
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.
The Raiders are schedule to open the season against the Rams, so it perplexed coach Jon Gruden when they also showed up on their preseason schedule. As a result, he has opted to rest Carr and several other starters in an execution of gamesmanship. The quarterback will likely see some action in the team's third exhibition game next week versus the Packers.
Raiders head coach Jon Gruden described the injury as a tweak. The 31-year-old Wright is had a pair of tackles before exiting the game.
Harris, who had surgery to repair a broken finger, was expected to be back at practice Monday but he took an extra day off and managed to make his timely return Tuesday. Harris is considered to be on the roster bubble, so he will need to have a healthy, productive preseason in the Raiders' secondary.
Rubin sustained a season-ending biceps tear during last week's joint practices with the Lions. To replace him on the roster, Oakland claimed fellow defensive lineman Gabe Wright off waivers.
Holton suited up for all 16 games last season, catching nine passes for 218 yards and three touchdowns on the year. Despite his speed and deep-threat status, he's struggled with drops and was already near the tail end of the depth chart prior to the offseason acquisition of Jordy Nelson. Look for Holton to battle with Seth Roberts and Ryan Switzer for the depth receiver roles on the Raiders' Week 1 roster.
It's not a huge surprise that Joseph is back on the field and ready to contribute considering his injury wasn't that serious. After starting 15 games for the Raiders last season, the third-year defensive back is slated to retain a starting safety spot for the club in 2018.
Penn was placed on the PUP at the very start of training camp while recovering from foot surgery, but it appears he is back to full health now given he was immediately back on the practice field.
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.
Warren was the game's rushing leader by a wide margin, as DeAndre Washington finished a distant second with 38 yards of his own. Warren, who went undrafted out of the University of Texas, averaged 6.6 yards per carry in his NFL preseason debut as he continues to battle for a roster spot behind Marshawn Lynch, Doug Martin, Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington. According to Pro Football Focus, Warren also averaged an impressive 3.6 yards after contact per attempt during Friday's tilt, Marcus Mosher of USA Today reports.
Switzer, who is looking to carve out a role in the Raiders' offense as a potential gadget-type slot receiver, was on the receiving end of a touchdown throw from backup quarterback Connor Cook on Friday. The former Cowboy has caught the eye of head coach Jon Gruden throughout training camp, so at this point Switzer's roster spot doesn't appear to be in much danger as he also competes for a gig in the return game.
Head coach John Gruden said Whalen and Switzer were "neck-and-neck" in the competition for the slot, but it looks like Whalen has a legitimate shot at landing a starting role after signing with the team in March. Special teams production will likely play a role in who gets the spot, as both Whalen and Switzer have excelled as return men. Additionally, the Seth Roberts' return from an undisclosed injury adds another element to the competition.
Lee is ready to return after missing the Raiders' last three games. With Cory James also returning from his own knee injury, the rookie is probably ticketed for a reserve role.
Hall began training camp on the PUP list due to the injury, but the issue was only expected to hold him out for a short period of time. His return Wednesday qualifies on that front, though he was only able to participate in a limited fashion. When healthy, the rookie second-round pick out of Sam Houston State should receive a fair shake at significant playing time as a rookie.
Carradine missed the first half of the 2017 season with a knee injury but recorded 19 tackles (14 solo) and 1.5 sacks in the final eight games of the season with San Francisco. The 29-year-old is likely to serve a rotational role for the Raiders' defensive line unit in 2018.
The undrafted rookie out of USC will make his NFL debut this Sunday against the Giants after spending the preseason with Raiders before being signed to the practice squad prior to Week 1. Don't expect Whitney to see many offensive reps, as he will be the fifth wideout on the depth chart -- but with Michael Crabtree suspended and Amari Cooper (concussion, ankle) not at full strength, Whitney could get an opportunity at some point during the contest.
Pringle didn't last long in Detroit after signing with the Lions in April. Now in his second season after going undrafted out of Southern Utah last year, he'll become an unrestricted free agent if he passes through waivers unclaimed.
Hatcher, an undrafted free agent out of Arkansas in 2016, signed with the Raiders this past offseason. However, he was ultimately let go prior to the season kicking off. After spending time on their practice squad, the big-play receiving threat will look to impress enough during the offseason and land a role with the team next year.
Mitchel landed on the Colts' injured reserve during training camp, and was ultimately waived off injured reserve on Oct. 26. Mtichel later found his way to the Raiders' practice squad, and will now look to earn a role with the team for the 2018 season.
Worley left Monday's practice following a collision in 7-on-7 drills with Rashaan Melvin. The team opted to not disclose the point of injury, but it doesn't appear to have been all that serious considering Worley is already back in action.
Parker had been dealing with a minor ankle injury throughout the past couple of weeks, but he appears to be back at full strength during Monday's session. He could see additional reps at right tackle with Breno Giacomini nursing an undisclosed injury.
Cooper will get the day off along with several other starters. Head coach Jon Gruden does not want to give too much of their game plan away, as the Raiders will face the Rams once again in Week 1 of the regular season. Look for the Alabama product to see some snaps in next week's preseason game against the Packers.
Key was held out of the Raiders' preseason opener with an ankle injury, but the third-round pick has returned to practice in no time. The rookie out of LSU figures to rotate with Shilique Calhoun, Tank Carradine, Fadol Brown and Frostee Rucker at defensive end behind starter Bruce Irvin throughout the preseason.
Hall has played for the Giants and the 49ers the past two years after spending the first nine years of his career with Cincinnati. The 33-year-old cornerback recorded 15 tackles and one pass defensed while playing in nine games in 2017. He'll likely be a depth corner while with Oakland in 2018.
Ware appears to have made a full recovery from his concussion symptoms and is back at practice. He should be a full participant through the rest of preseason barring any setbacks.
Brown has been on the Raiders' practice squad since falling victim to roster cutdowns in September. The undrafted rookie free agent is unlikely to be an offensive factor and should serve as the team's No. 3 tight end with Clive Walford (concussion, neck) placed on injured reserve.
Giacomini is in the mix for starts at right tackle this season, but missing a chunk of time during the preseason won't help his case for the job. He missed practice again Monday and there is no indication of when he may return to the gridiron.
Manuel was overshadowed by fellow backup Connor Cook, who completed 11 of 19 pass attempts for 141 yards and a score as three of his five drives at the helm led to points. Cook subsequently earned second-team reps in Monday's practice, but Manuel eventually took Cook's place as the latter struggled with errant throws and a muffed snap in the red zone following his impressive performance Friday, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports. Manuel and Cook will continue to battle for the primary backup spot behind starter Derek Carr heading into Saturday's preseason game against the Rams, but Manuel has experience on his side.
Irvin, who turned 30 years old in November, has notched an impressive 10 total forced fumbles in two seasons with the Raiders. His eight sacks in 2017 were the most in a season for Irvin since his rookie campaign with Seattle in 2012. The outside linebacker has two years remaining on his contract with the Raiders, and the team plans to have one of its leading edge rushers back in 2018.
Hester left last week's loss to the Cowboys after sustaining an ankle injury, and will now miss Monday's game as well. Look for Eddie Vanderdoes to see an increased role on the defensive line as a result of his absence.
Feliciano sat out Week 14 with a concussion but was able to return in for last Sunday's loss to the Cowboys, only to exit with a recurrence of the head injury.
Bryant was absent from drills most of the last week due to what was termed "really bad migraines," according to Vic Tafur of The Athletic Bay Area. Although he returned to drills Wednesday, Bryant is among a number of Raiders starts to get the day off Saturday. Expect Bryant to earn his busiest preseason run Friday against the Packers as the Raiders ramp up for the regular season.
Roberts was absent from Monday's practice after missing Friday's preseason opener, but it appears the reason for his absence was relatively minor. Now back in the fold, Roberts is likely slated for the No. 4 role this season after the Raiders signed veteran Jordy Nelson and traded for Martavis Bryant during the offseason.
Johnson, 35, parted ways with the Chiefs this offseason after spending 13 years in Kansas City. Although he's getting up there in age, Johnson is a welcome addition to a weak Raiders linebacking corps and should push for a starting job before long. However, it isn't certain that head coach Jon Gruden views the veteran as a three-down player, so IDP expectations should remain tempered for the time being.
