The Raiders announced that they have waived/injured 7th-round pick WR Andre Debose with an Achilles injury, and have signed free agent WR/RS Trindon Holiday.
Holliday joins the Raiders after stints with the Houston Texans (2011-12, Denver Broncos (2012-13), Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2014), San Francisco 49ers (2014). In all, he has appeared in 33 career games, totaling 82 punt returns for 769 yards (9.4 average) and 54 kickoff returns for 1,455 yards (26.9 average), while adding two punt and two kickoff return touchdowns.
Holliday was originally a sixth-round pick (197th overall) by the Texans in the 2010 NFL Draft after playing four years at LSU.
Debose was taken in the 7th round by the Raiders in this year’s draft and had looked to be a strong candidate to ignite a poor Raiders return game from last season. Should Debose clear waivers, the Raiders can put reserve/injured him and hold on to him until next season.
