Unconfirmed signings of undrafted free agents

Although the Raiders have not confirmed any undrafted free agent signings, NFL.com has the following players listed as joining the Raiders:

Notre Dame running back George Atkinson III, Virginia Tech wide receiver D.J. Coles, Texas wide receiver Mike Davis, Winston-Salem State linebacker Carlos Fields Jr., San Jose State wide receiver Noel Grigsby, Montana tackle Danny Kistler, Utah tight end Jake Murphy, Florida International tight end Scott Simonson, Jackson State defensive tackle Rob Smith and Utah fullback Carl Williams.

General manager Reggie McKenzie all but confirmed Sunday that the son of former Raiders safety George Atkinson was joining the third, and a source confirmed San Jose State’s Grigsby would be joining the team for the coming rookie camp next weekend.

McKenzie is reluctant to release names until he has signed documents because “It’s a rat race when it comes to that. Kids change their mind so many times. It’s a recruiting process where we thought we had a deal and five minutes later, 15 minutes later, we don’t.”

It’s a rat race when it comes to that. Kids change their minds so many times. It’s a recruiting process where we thought we had a deal and five minutes after, 15 minutes later we don’t. So we tend to wait until we get the signed document and then announce it.
