Raiders Re-Sign DE Shilique Calhoun To PS, Release DL Gabe Wright

Michael Gehlken reports that the Raiders have re-signed DE Shilique Calhoun to their practice squad on Friday and released DL Gabe Wright from the unit.

The Raiders’ practice squad now consists of:

  1. TE Paul Butler
  2. S Dallin Leavitt
  3. WR Saeed Blacknall
  4. LB Jason Cabinda
  5. FB Ryan Yurachek
  6. WR Marcell Ateman
  7. G/T Denver Kirkland
  8. DB Rico Gafford
  9. WR Johnny Holton
  10. DE Shilique Calhoun

Calhoun, 26, is a former third-round pick of the Raiders back in 2016. He was in the second year of his four-year, $3.29 million contract and set to make a base salary of $565,000 when the Raiders cut him loose coming out of the preseason last year.

Oakland later signed him to their practice squad and eventually promoted him to their active roster midseason. The Raiders resigned Calhoun to exclusive rights deal this offseason only to waive him on Wednesday.

In 2017, Calhoun appeared in nine games for the Raiders and recorded eight tackles and no sacks.
