The Raiders added some secondary help to their busy week of free agency.

According to Jerry McDonald of the Bay Area News Group, the Raiders have reached a deal with veteran cornerback Eli Apple.

The former Giants first-rounder spent the last two years with the Saints.

The Raiders have jammed a month’s worth of deals into this week, after previously adding Cory Littleton, Marcus Mariota, Jason Witten, Maliek Collins, Nick Kwiatkoski, Jeff Heath, Carl Nassib, and Christian Kirksey.

Apple was No. 62 on PFT’s Top 100 Free Agent list.

  1. Nice to see the Raiders addressing their needs now, so they can draft best available player instead of need.

  2. There’s going to be a lot of competition and not all these guys will make the final roster.

  3. I think Apple might be the worst CB there is. Whenever I would watch the Saints, he was the guy the opposing team would pick on. The reason he was on the Saints is because the Giants gave up on him.

  4. I liked what the Raiders had done going into the Eli Apple move. That one I question!

  5. sort of a curious move considering they went through the crap last year with AB.
    Why would you bring a problem on board?

  6. The Raiders needed to bring in a veteran corner, but I was hoping for almost anyone else.

  7. LOL! I was impressed with what the Raiders were doing until this move. Apple is a journeyman that had great pedigree but it never panned out. It still won’t.

  8. Apple’s numbers themselves are good, but he gets burned or penalized at the seemingly most crucial times. He has outgrown dissention issues. I am glad he was traded but wish him well.

  9. the Packers signed Christian Kirksey for the second time edit your post or try and proofread it first and then check your sources. Really unprofessional of you and I only say that cuz I posted this politely before anyone had posted a comment and you didn’t post my comment and haven’t corrected the mistake. Bravo!

  10. GOOD RIDDIANCE ELI. I can’t wait to see Drew Bress SHREAD YOU later on this season……
