The Oakland Raiders re-signed defensive tackle Brian Sanford and activated linebacker Miles Burris from the physically unable to perform list on Wednesday.

The roster spots were available due to the placing of cornerback D.J. Hayden on injured reserve and the release of linebacker Martez Wilson.

Burris started 15 of 16 games for the Raiders and racked up 96 tackles, 1.5 sacks and an interception as a rookie last season. Burris had knee surgery this offseason and began the season on the physically unable to perform list. He returned to practice for the Raiders on Oct. 30 and had to be activated by the team this week.

Sanford has played four games for the Raiders this season while making one start this season. He’s recorded seven tackles on the year.

    It should be nice to have Burris back.

    Burris has a great motor but he’s small and has been injured a lot.

    Too bad about Hayden.

    Glad to see Burris is making his way back….he was one of the few bright spots in last years draft….the boys a tackling machine.

    Glad to see we get our version of Luke Kuechly back in the mix.

    I think Burris is more like our version of Ernie Sims or Philip Wheeler. Moore and Burnett are both better than Burris, but if can get himself in game shape he will provide some good depth and will help on special teams.
