The Raiders continued to tinker with their 53-man roster Monday by claiming defensive tackle Brian Price from Dallas. He is now the 29th new player from last year. Yes, that much more than half the roster Jon Gruden has turned over. Gone is 2017 seventh-round pick Treyvan Hester, who flashed at times last season. There are currently just two 2017 draft picks on the 53-man roster which, of course, is not good.
Who is he: He is a third-year player from Texas-San Antonio. He was signed as an undrafted free agent by Green Bay in 2016 and spent some time on the roster and on the practice squad. Dallas claimed him of waivers last September. His season ended in November because of a knee injury. He has eight career tackles and he is 24.
What’s he known for: He has good interior pass-rush skills. Dallas reportedly wanted to re-sign him today, but Oakland claimed him.
Raiders connection: There’s always a connection with this staff. Price actually has two. He played for Oakland defensive line coach Mike Trgovac in Green Bay and Oakland special teams coach Rich Bisaccia in Dallas.
What to expect: Not much right away. He is a develop player with some upside.
