Raiders sign Trindon Holliday, waive/injured seventh-rounder Andre Debose
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.
