Raiders Sign 9 To Futures Deals Including TE Cooper Helfet

The Oakland Raiders announced Monday that they’ve signed nine players to Reserve/Future contracts.

The Raiders have now signed 11 players to futures deals including:

  2. LB Dwayne Norman (NFLTR)

  7. TE Cooper Helfet

Helfet, 27, wound up signing on with the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent out of Duke back in 2012. Since then, he’s been on and off of the team’s active roster.

Seattle re-signed him to a one-year, exclusive rights contract. However, he was waived and later reverted to their injured reserve list after clearing waivers. The Seahawks later decided to cut Helfet in August of last year and it took until October for him to catch on with to the Raiders’ practice squad.

In 2015, Helfet appeared in 14 games for the Seahawks and recorded 13 receptions for 130 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
