Raiders work on trench depth

September, 1, 2013
As expected, the Oakland Raiders attempted to improve their thin roster through the waiver wire.

With the trenches being a huge issue in the preseason, Oakland claimed defensive end Brian Sanford from Cleveland and guard Antoine McClain from Baltimore.

McClain is massive. The Clemson product is 6-foot-5, 336 pounds. He could be an interesting depth piece for Oakland. He was on the Ravens’ practice squad last season.

Sanford was with Cleveland for parts of the past three years.

Oakland reportedly added receiver Greg Jenkins, guard Lamarr Mady and tight end Brian Leonhardt to the practice squad. The team has not announced any members of the eight-man squad.
