The agent for punter Danny Baugher told the National Football Post his client was joining the practice squad of the Raiders.
Baugher led the UFL with a 44.6 yards per punt average and a 36.7 net for the two-time league champion Las Vegas Locomotives. Las Vegas is coached by Jim Fassel, the father of Raiders special teams coordinator John Fassel.
Baugher has been in the camps of the Bengals, Patriots, Falcons and Broncos.
Signing Baugher to the practice squad would enable the Raiders to get a look at him during practice as well as Lechler. If it was determined by the end of the week Lechler wouldn’t be able to punt, Baugher could be promoted to the 53-man roster.
