position that had less depth.
Raiders claim Brian Price off waivers from Cowboys Bo Jackson Jersey White , waive Treyvon Hester And another Reggie McKenzie draft pick is ousted by Jon Gruden. Treyvon Hester, despite performing quite well this preseason was waived today in favor of former Cowboys defensive tackle Brian Price.Hester is the fourth players who was on the Raiders initial 53 to get his walking papers since Saturday’s initial cutdown. Tackles Ian Silberman and David Sharpe were ousted in favor of TJ Clemmings and Justin Murray and Johnny Holton was let go this morning in favor of free agent Brandon LaFell.Hester was one of ten defensive linemen retained, so it would have made sense to let him go if it was to bolster another position that had less depth. But they simply replaced him outright.Price originally made the Green Bay Packers in 2016 as an undrafted free agent out of UT-San Antonio while Raiders defensive line coach Mike Trgovac was in Green Bay. He played with the Cowboys last season and was waived Sunday. The 6-foot-3, 303-pound defensive tackle has totaled nine NFL games played and recorded eight tackles (six solo) in his career.Hester also becomes the 17th former Reggie McKenzie draft pick no longer on the roster since Jon Gruden took over the team this offseason. Leaving just ten McKenzie draft picks still on the team in his tenure as GM.Follow @LeviDamien Raiders coach Jon Gruden loves the energy Antonio Brown brings to his team. And also the attitude Vontaze Burfict walks in the door with.There is the small matter, however , of their history before becoming teammates.Via Peter King of NBC’s , Gruden had the former Steelers-Bengals rivals join forces in a team-building version of “Family Feud” during OTAs.“They’re good,” Gruden said. “We played Family Feud one day in our team meeting. We had three guys on one team, three guys on the other. Our version of “Family Feud.” Silver team and a Black team. The Silver team was Antonio Brown, Vontaze Burfict and I think we had Isaiah Crowell on the team.“You gotta try to get these guys to know each other. This is the only time that you can really do that. April Derek Carr Jersey White , May, June. It’s almost like church. Everybody stand up. Shake a hand, introduce yourself to your teammates. Otherwise, Peter never gets to know Jon and Jon never meets Joe.”Gruden described it as “a helluva game,” and that’s also one way of describing the Burfict-Brown relationship before they became teammates. The former Bengals linebacker knocked Brown out in a playoff game Antonio Brown Raiders Jersey , just one of the times he and the Steelers were at odds over Burfict’s over-the-top style.But Gruden went on and on about the “energy” Brown brought to the team, while mentioning Burfict “talking trash at us down the hall” at their facility. It’s a fascinating dynamic, and Gruden’s going to have to be at his Richard Dawson-best as a host to make it work.
