Raiders Sign Veteran DT Terrell McClain, Cut Three


The Oakland Raiders have signed veteran DT Terrell McClain to a contract on Wednesday.

The Raiders also released DE Kasim Edebali and DT Corey Liuget and waived LB Dakota Allen.

McClain, 31, is a former third-round pick of the Panthers back in 2011. He lasted just over a year in Carolina before he was waived at the start of the 2012 season and later signed by the Patriots.

McClain had stints with the Texans and Cowboys before signing a four-year, $21 million contract with the Redskin in 2017. Washington released him after only one year and he later signed a one-year, $4 million deal with Atlanta last year.

The Cardinals signed McClain during the offseason only to release him in August. He just recently signed on with the Chiefs. 

In 2019, McClain has appeared in two games for the Chiefs and recorded three tackles.

Liuget, 28, is a former first-round pick of the Chargers back in 2011. He finished the fourth year of his six-year, $58.219 million contract that included $30.477 million guaranteed when the Chargers declined his option earlier this year. 

Liuget missed the first four games of the 2018 season, due to a suspension for violating the league’s performance-enhancing drugs policy. He landed on the injured reserve after sustained a right knee injury during Week 11.

Liuget caught on with the Raiders near the end of the preseason. 

In 2019, Liuget has appeared in three games for the Raiders and recorded three tackles.
