Add tight end Nick O'Leary to the list of new Raiders.

O’Leary’s agents announced their client has signed with the team on Saturday. Saturday also brought word that the Raiders have signed wide receiver Nelson Agholor and offensive lineman Eric Kush.

O’Leary opened last season with the Dolphins, but got released in October. He signed with the Jaguars in November and finished the year with 13 catches for 109 yards and a touchdown in 12 games.

He opened his career as a sixth-round pick of the Bills after winning the John Mackey Award during his final season at Florida State.

In addition to O’Leary, Agholor and Kush, the Raiders have signed linebacker Cory Littleton, quarterback Marcus Mariota, linebacker Nick Kwiatkoski, defensive end Carl Nassib, safety Jeff Heath, tight end Jason Witten, cornerback Eli Apple and defensive tackle Maliek Collins ahead of their first season in Las Vegas.

  1. Another desperate and disappointing FA signing. Wow Gruden and Mayock are basically the facility managers of Chernobyl in 1986 at this point. We will be lucky to see five wins this season.

    A lot of these type of guys won’t make the team, or end up on the practice squad. You can bring in guys like this or college players that were not drafted.

  3. O’Leary isn’t even guaranteed to make the practice squad, so don’t get too carried away. I remember around this time last year. All the geniuses were saying the Raiders needed to make drafting a TE a high priority. They traded away Jared Cooks. Who’s this Waller guy? He only had 18 receptions in three NFL seasons. The sky is falling. But then Gruden goes out and gets Waller 90 receptions, and gets a good young TE, Foster Moreau in the 4th round, and the TE position ended up being one of their strongest positions. Even if O’Leary is a good player, it’s going to be tough to make the roster. But after what Gruden’s done, I wouldn’t be shocked if O’Leary gets 90 catches this year.

    O’Leary was doing really well in camp the last couple of years.
    Very good catching but his lack of blocking really makes him a liability.

  5. Every single FA pick up for the Raiders the past few days has been lees than average help to your struggling squad.

    Mayock knows what he’s doing on draft weekend and the buck stops there for that TV guy. Gruden should be in the MNF booth, he’s days of coaching are long gone.

    Good Luck Raider’s fans, you’re going to need it in your division and just in general overall…

  6. Before injuries the Raiders were a playoff team. Even with the injuries and losses piling up they went until the final moments of week 17 before being eliminated from the playoffs. Gruden went for two instead of tying the game and sending it to overtime and a chance at a 500 season. This gained them 4 spots in the draft.

    They were 3, maybe 4 wins better this past year, the defense is getting better and better and they will not be having a million travel miles this year. The Raiders will once again go into week 17, this time ahead of most teams looking for the 5th and 6th seed.

    Those paying attention know this Raiders team is going to be pretty stout. 10 wins is a legit goal.
