Free Agent Tracker: Wilber Becomes Second Player to Sign With Raiders
Two former draft picks are no longer on the Cowboys roster as they parted ways with veteran cornerback Orlando Scandrick after 10 seasons on Saturday. The former fifth-round pick in 2008 can now sign with any team, although he was designated as a June 1 release to save more money under the cap.
However, the Cowboys also said goodbye to veteran linebacker Kyle Willber. The fourth-round pick in 2012 signed a free-agent deal with the Oakland Raiders. That’s the second player to sign with Oakland in the last week as Wilber joins fullback Keith Smith. Both players have a role on special teams and will play for Rich Bisaccia, who left the Cowboys for Oakland this offseason as the new special teams coordinator.
In six years with the Cowboys, Wilber started just 16 games at linebacker and only one in the past two years. But he carved out a nice role on special teams and had a couple of game-changing plays in the kicking game.
