How acquired: Undrafted free agent
2013 season: Casey was a fan favorite in training camp and showed enough to the Oakland Raiders’ staff to earn a spot on the team’s practice squad. The Baylor product stayed there for the Raiders’ first 12 games before being activated to the 53-man roster on Dec. 7 and being active for the Raiders’ game at the New York Jets the following day. Casey was inactive the following two games, but in the season finale, he recovered a blocked punt at the Denver Broncos’ 24-yard line in the third quarter.
Looking ahead: Casey was more of a special-teams guy so it’s hard to say he made a mark to become a regular part of the Raiders’ secondary. Still, with Tracy Porter, Mike Jenkins and Phillip Adams all free agents, there should be an opportunity to compete.
The Raiders’ other 2013 rookies that finished the season on the roster: S Shelton Johnson, WR Greg Jenkins, G Lamar Mady, QB Matt McGloin, WR Brice Butler, DT Stacy McGee, TE Mychal Rivera, RB Latavius Murray, TE Nick Kasa, LB Sio Moore, OT Menelik Watson, CB D.J. Hayden, DE Ryan Robinson.
