The Raiders signed three players after working them out: running back Jon Hoese, nose tackle Johnny Jones and wide receiver Isaiah Williams to reserve/future contracts.
Here’s what the Raiders have to say about the three players in a press release:
The 6-foot-2, 247-pound Hoese was in training camp with the Green Bay Packers in 2012. He was originally signed by the Packers as a non-drafted rookie free agent out of Minnesota, and spent time on Green Bay’s practice squad in 2011. His last name is pronounced HAZE-ee.
The 6-foot-4, 317-pound Jones was with the Packers for the past two seasons. He spent the majority of the 2011 season on Green Bay’s practice squad and was placed on injured reserve during the 2012 preseason. Jones originally signed with the Miami Dolphins as a non-drafted free agent out of Marshall in 2011.
Williams, a 6-foot-2, 204-pound receiver, spent time on the Arizona Cardinals’ practice squad in 2012. He has been with four different teams, including Pittsburgh and Seattle, since entering the NFL as a non-drafted rookie free agent with the Baltimore Ravens in 2009 out of Maryland, where he was teammates with current Raiders WR Darrius Heyward-Bey.

    Chiefs hire Andy Reid, great offensive mind, and are looking to bring in Monte Kiffin for DC. Thats a lot of football intelligence and experience for a team talented enough to send 5 players to the Pro Bowl this season.

    San Diego is interviewing Tom Gamble for their GM position. Tom is respected in the league, and has the ability to bring some good coaching talent with him. I think he’s done a real good job with the 9ers personnel and helping them build a solid team. We’ll see what happens there, but SD is looking to improve from what theyve been doing.

    Broncos are in the playoffs, won the division, enough said.

    Oakland Raiders. We dont have an O-line coach or an OC, two EXTREMELY important aspects of a staff, and would also be a huge advantage to us in the Senior Bowl coming up. We also have no Special Teams coach. Yet, we dont even hear a single word about potential candidates.

    Whats going on Raiders? Im not impressed with what Im seeing so far this offseason. As horribly as they handled 2012, you would think theyd be hard at work trying to improve this staff, but we dont even hear a peep, while the other teams in our division are actively at work.

    I need to hear something, anything regarding a plan to improve the coaching staff for next season.

    Agreed. This is troubling
