The Oakland Raiders announced that they’ve placed DL Demetrius Cherry on waivers Monday.
Cherry, 24, originally signed on with the 49ers as an undrafted free agent out of Arizona State back in May of last year. He was, unfortunately, among the 49ers’ final roster cuts coming out of the preseason but later signed on to the Raiders’ practice squad a few weeks into the regular season.
Oakland elected to bring Cherry back on a future/reserve contract this past January.
During the preseason last year, Cherry appeared in all four games and recorded eight tackles and no sacks for the 49ers.
