Practice Squad Contracts Expired For Raiders QB Garrett Gilbert & OT Takoby Cofield

The practice squad contracts for Raiders OT Takoby Cofield and QB Garrett Gilbert officially expired on Monday.

This means that both players are now free agents. However, they could still be signed to futures deals in the coming weeks.

Gilbert, 25, is a former sixth-round pick of the Rams. However, his time in St. Louis was short lived as he was waived at the start of the 2014 season before later signing to the Rams’ practice squad.

After a brief stint with the Patriots, Gilbert was later claimed by the Lions. Unfortunately, Gilbert was unable to make the Lions’ 53-man roster coming out of the preseason but spent the entire 2015 season on the Raiders’ practice squad.

The Raiders cut him loose last May only to bring him back after Derek Carr got hurt towards the end of the season.

Gilbert has yet to appear in an NFL game.

Editor’s note: The initial post mentioned that these players had signed future/reserve contracts, but their practice squad contracts actually expired.
