Raiders make first roster moves to get down to 85 players

The deadline for NFL teams to make their first set of roster cuts is tomorrow. And most teams are getting ahead of things and announcing those moves today. The roster must come down from the 90-man offseason roster to 85 players. And since the Raiders had a full roster, five players were set to be waived. Those players are as follows:


QB Case Cookus
K Dominic Eberle
LS Liam McCullough
RB Bo Scarborough
WR Caleb Scott


CB De’Vante Bausby
DT Ethan Westbrooks

The team also announced kicker Daniel Carlson’s return from the reserve/COVID-19 list, which is part of what made Eberle expendable. McCullough was depth at long snapper behind Trent Sieg.

Cookus and Scarborough were both recent additions since camp due to injuries and such. Now with Marcus Mariota returning from his injury, Cookus became extraneous. And the running back room is looking at a nice little competition between Trey Ragas and BJ Emmons, making Scarborough the odd man out.
