Raiders Re-Sign safety Taylor Mays and DL C.J. Wilson!!!
With Oakland Raiders Safety Nate Allen out due to a knee injury Raiders Re-Sign safety Taylor Mays and DL C.J. Wilson on Tuesday.
CelebNMusic247.com has this report that Raiders Nation is bringing back Taylor Mays.
Mays participated during the preseason with Oakland, comes on the heels of losing starting safeties Nate Allen to an MCL injury, per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, and Charles Woodson to a dislocated shoulder, per Dan Gartland of SI.com.
As for, Just a few weeks ago, Mays was a member of the Detroit Lions, but he asked to be released, per Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press Twitter feed:
Detroit granted his request, and Mays signed with the Raiders a few days later.
The safety has been unable to live up to the hype surrounding him after coming out of USC as one of the nation’s most dominant defensive backs. Mays has started just four games in the past four seasons, but Oakland needs as much help as it can get after giving up almost 400 yards to the Bengals.
As for defensive tackle C. J. Wilson, he will make his return to Oakland to try to bolster a defensive line that allowed over 100 rushing yards to the Bengals.
Wilson recorded 16 tackles and two sacks with the Raiders last season. In order to make room for Wilson, the Raiders released tight end Gabe Holmes.
It looks like a patchwork defense for a Raiders side that struggled mightily against Andy Dalton and the Bengals, reports Joe Pantorno of the BleacherReport.
