With the rookies set to take the field at Raiders rookie minicamp, Reggie McKenzie officially announced the undrafted free agent signings Friday.
Included in the list is Notre Dame running back George Atkinson III, son of former Raiders great safety George Atkinson. Atkinson III rushed for 943 rushing yards, ten touchdowns on 153 attempts in his career at Notre Dame. He’s also a dangerous return man.
Texas wide receiver Mike Davis is another intriguing name on the list. Davis finished fourth in school history with 200 receptions in his four-year career. He also finished fourth in receiving yards (2,753) and fifth in receiving touchdowns (18). We’ll see if he can help pick up the Raiders receiving game.
