  • Raiders' James Cowser: Moved to defensive line

    Cowser is taking reps on the defensive line throughout training camp, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports.

    The Raiders had tried Cowser as a linebacker over the past few seasons, but he's slated to play defensive end throughout the preseason after primarily serving on special teams in 2017.

  • Raiders' James Cowser: Sticking around in Oakland

    Cowser has signed a reserve/future contract with the Raiders, Matt Schneidman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Cowser appeared in 22 games for Oakland between the 2016 and 2017 seasons, but the 28-year-old failed to make a single game appearance throughout 2018. It appears he'll now get another chance to earn a role in Oakland's linebacking corps, though Cowser's most probable outcome -- should he make the team out of training camp -- is likely contained to work on special teams.

  • James Cowser: Waived by Oakland

    Cowser was waived by the Raiders on Monday, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

    Cowser was waived by Oakland to begin the 2018 season, briefly rejoined the team in late October, and will ultimately be set loose once more to make room for Kony Ealy on the 53-man roster. If the depth defensive end goes unclaimed on waivers, he'll be a strong candidate to sign with the Raiders' practice squad.
