Raiders Re-Sign RFA DL Denico Autry

The Oakland Raiders officially re-signed restricted free agent DL Denico Autry on Monday.

The original-round tender will cost the Raiders around $1.797 million for the 2017 season.

Autry, 26, originally signed on with the Packers as an undrafted free agent out of Mississippi back in 2014. However, he was waived after a week with the team and claimed by the Raiders.

The Raiders decided to waive him later on and signed him to their practice squad after clearing waivers. Oakland promoted him to the active roster back in 2014 and signed him to one-year exclusive rights deals the past two seasons.

In 2016, Autry appeared in all 16 games for the Raiders and recorded 29 total tackles, three sacks, two pass defenses and two fumble recoveries. Pro Football Focus rated him as the No. 113 overall interior defender out of 127 qualifying players.
