The Raiders re-signed defensive end Brian Sanford and added him to their 53-man roster Wednesday. He fills the void created by the releas of offensive lineman Jack Cornell.
Speaking of Cornell, he was re-signed today and placed back on the Raiders practice squad.
Confused? Don’t be. The Raiders waived Sanford before the Steelers game and signed Cornell from the practice squad because of the need for offensive line depth that day.
Now that the Raiders made it through the Steelers game, they are right back where they were at this time last week, with Sanford on the 53-man roster and Cornell on the practice squad.
In other news, former Raiders safety Michael Huff was waived by the Baltimore Ravens this morning. He recorded five tackles in limited action. He lost his starting job after a disastrous performance against the Denver Broncos in the regular-season opener.
It’s very unlikely that the Raiders will make a run at bringing back Huff, regardless the salary.
