Kansas City signed several try-out players: defensive lineman Risean Broussard, safety Greg Castillo, defensive end Miguel Chavis, safety Justin Glenn, running back Jordan Roberts and defensive back James Rogers. They also cut running back Nate Eachus, fullback Ryan D'Imperio and defensive back Jose Gumbs. The Eachus cut is a tad surprising. He was well liked by the previous regime.
The Raiders also signed several try-out players: cornerback Chance Casey-Thomas, linebacker Eric Harper, receiver Greg Jenkins, tight end Jeron Mastrud, defensive end Ryan Robinson, center Andrew Robiskie and cornerback Mitchell White.
Oakland waived cornerback Adrian Bushell, center Deveric Gallington, defensive end Akwasi Owusu-Ansah, tight end Mickey Shuler and long snapper Adam Steiner. Bushell’s release is a bit surprising. He was considered a top free-agent get. But clearly he did not impress the team during the minicamp.
The Raiders also claimed receiver Andre Holmes off waivers from the New England Patriots. He had two catches with Dallas last season. He played at Hillsdale College with Oakland left tackle Jared Veldheer.
