Raiders sign three free agents, cut three from 53-man roster

The Raiders signed offensive tackle Willie Smith, linebacker Keenan Clayton and cornerback Philip Adams on Saturday, one day after they pared their roster to 53 players.
They waived cornerbacks Chimdi Chekwa and Bryan McCann and waived/injured defensive tackle Jamie Cumbie to make room for the aforementioned trio on the 53-man roster.
Clayton appeared in 21 games for the Philadelphia Eagles over the past two seasons. Adams played in 21 games for the 49ers, New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks. Clayton started one game. Adams has no starts as an NFL player.
Smith appeared in four games for the Redskins last season, of which three he started. He is 6-foot-6 and 310 pounds.
The Raiders have not announced any roster moves since they pared 22 players from the 75-man roster in reaching compliance with the league-mandated maximum of 53 on Friday night.
For every player signed from here on out, the Raiders are required to release a player from their roster.
In other news, look for the Raiders to begin signing players to their practice squad today. Teams are permitted to sign as many as eight players to their practice squad.
Likely candidates include linebackers Nathan Stupar and Chad Kilgore, defensive tackle Dominique Hamilton, wide receivers Derek Carrier and Travionte Session and kicker Eddy Carmona.

    From Bill Williamson:

    In other AFC West notes:

    It’s interesting that Oakland has kept punter Marquette King. He was put on injured reserve with a toe injury. If star punter Shane Lechler leaves after the season as a free agent, perhaps King can be groomed. King is not NFL ready, but he has a live leg and he has potential.

    This is a brilliant idea! I hope Reggie can pull it off.
    It’s what I would’ve done in Madden 13 before they ruined franchise mode. lmao

    Mistic,

    I saw your last post on Geno Smith, who I always said I like becaue of his pocket presence, arm and size.

    Yet, every draft thing I read on him lists his negative as not being an elite athlete, a stiff runner.

    What gives?

    -33 rushing yards last year? Career high rush 17 yards? 0 rushing TD’s?
