Bowers come into the league as an undrafted free agent out of Penn State. He spent the 2020 NFL season on the Raiders’ practice squad after signing in May.
Eberle was another undrafted free agent that found himself on the Raiders’ practice squad this past year. He finished his college career as the most decorated kicker in Utah State history.
Gaulden started his career with the Carolina Panthers as a third-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft and stopped off for a brief stint with the New York Giants before joining Las Vegas. He actually appeared in two games during the 2020 campaign.
Green started the season with the Indianapolis Colts before being signed to the Raiders’ practice squad in early November. He was initially a sixth-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft and is still looking for his first taste of NFL action.
Following his stint with the Houston Texans, Jones-Smith made his bones in the Alliance of American Football League. This helped him get picked up by the San Francisco 49ers before joining the Raiders and appearing in three games in 2020.
Magnuson spent his first two seasons with the 49ers before joining the Buffalo Bills. He spent the bulk of the year on the Raiders’ practice squad as insurance for their injury-stricken offensive line.
Onwualu has become a bit of a journeyman since entering the league as an undrafted free agent in 2017. He was signed to five previous teams before joining Las Vegas and playing in the final two games in 2020.
Like most players on this list, Scott enjoyed a brief stint in San Francisco before making stops with the Cincinnati Bengals and Buffalo Bills. He was signed to the practice squad in mid-December toward the end of the year.
Seymour joined the Raiders as an unrated free agent out of Rutgers. the rookie spent the entire season as a member of the practice squad.
Siveran came to Las Vegas in late October following a short tenure in Seattle as an undrafted free agent, while McCullough is another familiar face who originally signed as an indrafted free agent last spring.
Meanwhile, White saw the most action of any player on this list after appearing in four games. It appears his efforts on defense and special teams have helped keep him around going into the offseason.
