The Oakland Raiders officially promoted TE Gabe Holmes to their active roster on Friday, according to the NFL transactions release.
Holmes, 24, wound up signing on with the Raiders as an undrafted free agent out of Purdue back in May. He managed to make the 53-man roster coming out of preseason, but was cut loose just a few weeks later.
The Raiders later signed him to their practice squad after he cleared waivers.
During the preseason, Holmes caught four passes for 32 yards receiving and no touchdowns over the course of all four games.
