Raiders Sign Three Players Including RB John Crockett

The Oakland Raiders announced Friday that they’ve officially signed three players to contracts including RB John Crockett, OL Kareem Are, and LB Brady Sheldon.

The Raiders are now at the 90-man roster limit ahead of training camp.

Crockett, 25, wound up signing on with the Packers as an undrafted free agent out of North Dakota State back in May of 2015. However, he dealt with injuries during the preseason, which led to him being among their final roster cuts. The Packers later signed him to their practice squad.

Crockett, unfortunately, spent the 2016 season on the injured reserve and the Packers declined to tender him a qualifying offer this offseason, making him an unrestricted free agent.

In 2015, Crockett appeared in two games for the Packers and rushed for 21 yards on nine carries (2.3 YPC).

Sheldon wound up going undrafted out of Ferris State a few months ago but he did try out for the Raiders during their rookie minicamp. Unfortunately, the Raiders passed on signing him to a contract following the sessions.

During the 2016 season, Sheldon recorded 54 tackles, one sack, 2.5 tackles for a loss and three pass defenses over the course of 14 games.
