Seth Roberts, Denico Autry sign free agent tenders with Raiders

Raiders quarterback Derek Carr declared himself “ready to rock” on Monday and four of his teammates did the same by signing their tender offers from the club.

One of them was one of Carr’s receiving targets for the last two seasons. Wide receiver Seth Roberts will be back after a spell as an exclusive rights free agent and he’ll try to hold onto a role in sub packages alongside Michael Crabtree and Amari Cooper. Roberts had 38 catches for 397 yards and five touchdowns last season, but left some other plays on the field thanks to drops. Cordarrelle Patterson’s arrival may mean fewer chances for him in 2017.

Restricted free agent defensive lineman Denico Autry signed his tender as well. Autry had 2.5 sacks in 690 snaps for the Raiders last season and his chances of remaining in the rotation are likely linked to whether Mario Edwards can stay healthy.

Guard Denver Kirkland and tight end Gabe Holmes signed their exclusive rights tenders and round out the group of returning Raiders.

    All those guys should contribute- really looking forward to seeing what a healthy Gabe Holmes can bring.

    Seth glad to have you back, but you better work on those hands buddy!

    Seth Roberts is nothing more than a lucky rabbits foot. 8-0 in games he scores.

    i still dont know why they never tried Holmes in the slot, the guy has better hands is taller and all around better player than Roberts.

    plus he is the only guy who actually stepped up in the playoff smashing trying to help the rookie QB.

    All these guys should contribute. I like Seth, but I feel like its a position that can definitely be upgraded. With a healthy (knock on wood) Mario Edwards, we have a pretty beast front 7 on paper.
