The Raiders made the signing of cornerback Prince Amukamara official on Monday and that meant they needed to say goodbye to another player.

The team announced that they have waived cornerback Nick Nelson with a failed physical designation at the end of their release about the Amukamara signing.

Nelson was a fourth-round pick in 2018 and played 10 games during his rookie season. He failed to make the team out of camp last year, but returned to the active roster for 23 snaps in two appearances late in the regular season.

Nelson has 20 tackles and a fumble recovery over his 12-game career.

Amukamara joins Damon Arnette, Trayvon Mullen, Nevin Lawson and Isaiah Johnson at the top of the cornerback depth chart in Vegas.

  1. That is one sad group. They will get shelled. Best group in the NFL???? might not be the best in the SEC

  2. Solid CB in college but to this point hasnt developed the toughness and savvy you need for the NFL.

    Charlie is clearly being sarcastic and thats fine. Raiders secondary was awful last year and can really only go up from that.

    My hope is that with more talent in the middle of the defense it wont be so much pressure on the outside and just the overall talent acquisition across the board leads to better chemistry and close out ability in the second half of games.

    Raiders were one of the best 1st half teams last year and showed flashes of a legit playoff contender but a few 2nd half chokes and ton of injuries later we all know where they ended up.

    Im pumped though. We were 2 wins from a playoff appearance last year so hopefully were still trending in that direction.

    The Raiders might have the best cornerback group in the NFL.


    Another fantasy pipe dream for the delusional Lions/Raiders garbage teams # 1 fan.
