It’s only been a month since the NFL draft, but there’s already been a draft pick placed on waivers.

The Raiders announced Wednesday that seventh-round wide receiver Andre Debose has been waived/injured because of an Achilles injury. Any team can pick up Debose via a waiver claim and can revert to injured reserve with the Raiders if he goes unclaimed.

Debose was expected to challenge for kick and punt return duties with the Raiders this season, so the team turned to a veteran option in his place. They announced that they have signed the well-travelled Trindon Holliday as a free agent.

Holliday has played for the Texans, Broncos, Giants, Buccaneers and 49ers since entering the league in 2010. He’s had his bright moments — he’s the only player in NFL history to return a punt and kickoff for touchdowns in the same postseason game — but issues with fumbles and injuries over the years have kept him moving around the league.

  1. Unfortunate. Dubose had nice upside, hopefully this doesn’t derail his career before it even gets started. Holliday, on the other hand, if he can actually hold on to the ball… look out.

  2. The Raiders are the hospice of the NFL. It’s where players go when their careers are almost dead and they are never heard from again.

    Poor dude, what did he do in life to deserve to be sent to the Faders.

    Maybe he’s in witness protection. Will disappear soon.

    He was already invisible. The guy wasn’t mulling multiple offers. Posts like this just prove trolls aren’t smart.

  6. Here’s something that no one remembers about the Seahawks’ blowout of the Broncos in the Super Bowl: the infamous first snap that went over Manning’s head for a safety was only made possible due to Holliday fumbling the opening kick, setting the Broncos up to start their drive from the 10.

  7. Go ahead and have your fun with the Raiders. They are quickly building a talented, young team. They have the look of a 7-8 win team this year. One more good draft and a ton of cap room again next year. Look out!

  8. He’s the greatest NOW!!!! lol Hold on to that ball and we’ll be all good!
