    I give up, what's an "exclusive rights tender?" Sounds like good thing, but what's involved? Mostly, what is the upside for Keelan?

    ‘ Exclusive rights free agents, players with two years or fewer NFL experience, offered tenders are essentially bound to their NFL team. They can’t negotiate with other teams, and must sign the contract offer or sit out the season.’

    That sounds less good. Bound to one team, can't negotiate with other teams, take that teams' offer or sit. Hopefully there is some money up front during the life of the tender.

    Good luck to Keelan in any event.

    Seems like the Raiders would use these tenders for players they want to protect and keep. Sounds like a good sign that they have plans to develop Keelan.

    Much prefer your interpretation. Can see though that it could be used to hold on to players, then if circumstances force the team to cut the player late in the pre-season, the player has fewer opportunities to latch on with another team.

    Hopeing for the best for Keelan.

    Keelan will continue to work in Vegas this season.

    FWIW

    ...and for what it's also worth, Doss signed a Re-signed/exclusive FA One-year contract (through 2020) on May 6. Not sure what that means for the Raiders and Doss after the cutdown...my guess is he's tradable for a certain price, o/w the Raiders will continue to develop Kee and use him as a spot backup should injuries arrive...and they always do.

    Looks like Doss was cut by the team on 9/6 and then signed to the practice squad on 9/9. Hope a spot opens up for him.

    Keelan Doss: Locks down practice squad spot
    by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire
    Doss signed with the Raiders' practice squad Sunday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

    Doss played eight games with the Raiders last season and recorded 11 catches for 133 yards. The team brought in reinforcements at wide receiver this offseason, and Doss failed to beat out Rico Gafford for the No. 6 WR role in Las Vegas. Doss will continue to develop on the practice squad while waiting for a potential spot to open up on the active roster.

    Keelan Doss: Waived by Raiders
    by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire
    The Raiders waived Doss on Saturday.

    Despite averaging 23.3 snaps per game over eight contests with the Raiders last year, Doss was cut by the team to start the 2020 season. Since he has experience with the Raiders, he could stick around as a practice squad member.

    Henry Ruggs III left the Carolina game with what looked like a knee injury, thankfully for the Raiders, the speedster was back on the field in the second half.

    Injuries happen, Doss just needs to keep grinding, which is exactly what a practice squad player is paid to do: Be ready.
