Guard Lester Cotton Sr. Signs With Raiders

The former Crimson Tide guard signs with the Raiders after being waived by Las Vegas last season

The free agency additions continue for the Silver and Black.

On Tuesday, the Las Vegas Raiders announced that they have signed guard Lester Cotton Sr.

Cotton Sr. is a 6-foot-4, 335-pound guard, who was signed by the Raiders as an undrafted free agent following the 2019 NFL Draft.

In 2019, he spent 13 games on the practice squad and appeared in one game for the Raiders. In 2020, Cotton Sr. was waived by the Raiders before the season began.

Cotton Sr.’s college experience comes from Alabama, as he started 28 games in four years, including 10 at left guard and 18 at right guard.

During the senior year, he moved to the left guard position and helped his offense rank No. 3 in scoring average in the nation.

Once again, while right now the Raiders are slowly adding players who have the potential to make the team and make an impact pending on how they do during the offseason training program and training camp, it’s always a good idea to know what kind of players the Raiders are signing.

The Silver and Black signing a guard, albeit while he was waived last year, is still a good sign knowing that the Raiders have a little bit of shifting to do on the offensive line this off-season.

Nonetheless, I’ll keep you updated as the Raiders continue to add players to their roster during free agency.
