Raiders Cut Recently Signed Veteran WR to Bring Back WR From 2022 Squad
Keelan Cole didn't make the active roster with the Las Vegas Raiders last year and was placed on the practice squad. He played 14 games and started three.
Cole was not selected this season, but the Raiders have signed him to the practice squad for a second year in a row.
Cole is unlikely to play in Week 1 because Las Vegas has enough healthy wide receivers.
He is next in line for promotion if there is an injury. He knows McDaniels' offense and has been with the team for two offseasons.
With 10 catches for 141 yards last season, he's an experienced and valuable addition to the practice squad. He may play during the season.
Raiders' wide receiver corps is deeper with Meyers, Tucker, and Carter. They have one of the best NFL groups.
Las Vegas ranked 8th for wide receiver corps, according to Pro Football Focus.
Davante Adams has the highest receiving grade in the league at 94.2 over the last three seasons, making him a key factor for the Raiders' No. 8 ranking.
Waller leaving lowers the unit's potential, but Renfrow is a strong slot player and Jacobs can catch well. With Austin Hooper, Michael Mayer, and Jakobi Meyers, the group is solid.
Coach McDaniels values wide receivers and has a strong group to work with. Adams is elite, and Renfrow is set for a bounce-back year.
