The Raiders have not stopped retooling the roster as they sign three new players

Following the completion of rookie mini-camp on Sunday, the Oakland Raiders began to sign some of the players who tried out for the team. The first three have already announced their signings via Twitter and confirmed through the team’s official website: linebacker Najee Harris, defensive end LaTroy Lewis and defensive lineman Chris Casher.

Harris is from a small school, Wagner College in Staten Island, New York. He ran an impressive 4.59 40-yard dash at his school’s pro day and is 6’1″ and weighed in at 220 pounds.

Lewis started 21 games for the Tennessee Volunteers over the last two seasons. In 2016 alone, he ended with 36 tackles, four tackles for a loss, and two and a half sacks.

Casher played all four seasons for Florida State University before academics forced him to transfer to Faulkner University. During the 28 games he played for the Seminoles, between 2013-2015, he had 62 tackles, nine tackles for loss, and three sacks.
