Raiders Call Up Two For Thursday Night Football

The Las Vegas Raiders announced Thursday that they’ve elevated C Hroniss Grasu and FB Jakob Johnson to their active roster for Week 15’s game against the Chargers. 

Johnson, 28, joined the Patriots as part of the NFL’s International Player Pathway Program in 2019. He previously played for the Stuttgart Scorpions of the German Football League.

Johnson agreed to a three-year, $1.755 million contract with the Patriots. New England waived him coming out of the preseason and later signed him to their practice squad. 

From there, the Patriots promoted Johnson to their active roster until signing a one-year deal with the Raiders. Las Vegas brought him back on a one-year contract this past March but cut him during the season. 

In 2023, Johnson has appeared in eight games for the Raiders and caught one pass for 12 yards.
