The Raiders have signed three undrafted rookies after last weekend's minicamp and have also released three players, including a seventh-round draft pick from 2017. The newest Raiders: Texas RB Chris Warren, Michigan FB Henry Poggi and California (PA) TE Paul Butler. The former Raiders: Temple FB Nick Sharga, DL Joby Saint Fleur, who was on Oakland's practice squad in December, and RB Elijah Hood, who was selected by the Raiders in the seventh round of last year's draft out of North Carolina and spent most of the season on the practice squad. As such, the Raiders have parted ways with three draft picks from 2016-17 since the draft in Hood, DL Jihad Ward, who was traded to Dallas, and LB Cory James, who was waived on Friday.

Officially official: the Raiders have announced the signing of linebacker Derrick Johnson, who spent the first 13 years of his NFL career in Kansas City and is the Chiefs' all-time leading tackler. Johnson, a four-time Pro Bowler who turns 36 in November, figures to become Oakland's starting middle linebacker in its 4-3 base defense. "I think he brings us status at a critical position," Raiders coach Jon Gruden said of Johnson last week. "He's got a great history in this league. He's been productive under a lot of different coaches, different schemes. He understands the AFC West. He certainly understands this rivalry. I'm really excited to add him to our team with Tahir Whitehead and some of our young linebackers. I think his presence will be very valuable...getting a guy like Derrick Johnson, I think, could be huge for us.” The Raiders waived cornerback Darius Hillary to make room for Johnson on their 90-man offseason roster.

Rather than have first-round draft pick Kolton Miller start his NFL career at right tackle, the Raiders have him working almost exclusively on the left side. Yes, even if Oakland already has a Pro Bowler there in Donald Penn, who, by the way, is 35 and coming off Lisfranc surgery in his right foot. "That's where he has recently played," Gruden said of Miller, stretching in front of Gruden in this picture from rookie minicamp. "We like him at left tackle. We think he's a prototype left tackle. He can bend, he's got the length that you're looking for and he's a sharp kid...that doesn't mean that's where they're going to end up, though."

Eight of the Raiders' nine draft picks were on the field and participating in Friday's first practice of rookie minicamp. CB Nick Nelson, taken in the fourth round of out Wisconsin, was an observer as he rehabs from surgery to repair a torn meniscus. "It was only a six-week process," Nelson said last week of his procedure and rehab. "This is my second (week) so about four more weeks. I'll be good to go in the summer. By fall camp, I'll be 100 percent."

While reports circulate that the Raiders have reached an agreement with former Chiefs middle linebacker Derrick Johnson, the team will have to make another roster move to make the signing official. Because after waiving linebacker Cory James with a failed physical and defensive end Armonty Bryant with a non-football illness and signing six UDFA's, Oakland's offseason roster is currently at the max of 90 players.
