The Raiders have re-signed three players, including a wide receiver and a quarterback.
With the bye week behind them, the Las Vegas Raiders are retooling their roster. With the second half of the season approaching, the club must guarantee that its depth is in good shape. The Raiders revealed several roster changes on Wednesday.
The signing of linebacker Marquel Lee to the active roster was the team’s first major move.

Lee was picked in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft by the team and has spent years on and off the roster. He re-signed with the team’s practice squad soon before the season began this year.

What’s strange is that the Raiders listed him as a free agent in their press release announcing his signing.

Regardless, he’s back on the active roster for the time being.

Marcell Ateman and Nathan Peterman are back!
On Tuesday, the Raiders unexpectedly released quarterback Nathan Peterman. His time in free agency, though, was brief. Peterman will return to the Raiders’ practice squad, according to the team. He was most likely released to create room on the active roster. There was no reason to have three quarterbacks on the active roster with Derek Carr and Marcus Mariota healthy. Mariota has had health issues, so it’s a good idea to retain Peterman around in some manner. He’s familiar with the offense and played a lot in the preseason. If Carr needs assistance, he’ll be there.
