Raiders Unlikely To Keep More Than Five Receivers On Final Roster?


Scott Bair of CSN Bay Area believes that the Raiders will only keep five receivers on the final 53-man roster, with a potential of six as a special teams player.

This is particularly notable because beyond free agent signing WR James Jones, there is no clear pecking order for the receivers on the depth chart.  Currently the Raiders have WR Rod Streater, Denarius Moore, Andre Holmes, Greg LittleJuron Criner, Brice Butler, and Jones as their top receivers on the roster. While these players may not have produced a significant amount, all of them have a high potential.

Should the Raiders opt to only keep five or six receivers, one or two of these players could be cut before the final roster is formed.  Jones is locked into the final roster however all others seem to be competing for a job.
