The Oakland Raiders have signed four players to their practice squad. They have four remaining spots.
Heading the group is linebacker Nathan Stupar. The seventh-round pick was a star in the preseason and it was somewhat surprising he did not make the 53-man roster. The other three are receivers Brandon Carswell and Travionte Session and linebacker Kaelin Burnett.
Also, Oakland reportedly signed former Washington tackle Willie Smith, who fits the zone-blocking scheme the team uses. He has some starting experience, but he will likely be added for depth. There is no word of who will be cut to make room on the 53-man roster for Smith.
