CARMEL, Ind. – The Oakland Raiders have placed T Jared Veldheer on Reserve/Injured – Designated for Return and signed T Matt McCants from the practice squad, General Manager Reggie McKenzie announced Saturday.

Matt McCants is a former sixth-round selection in the 2012 NFL Draft by the New York Giants. After being waived by the Giants on Aug. 31, 2012, he was signed to their practice squad where he spent almost the entire season.

McCants played in 47 games with 42 starts, mostly at left tackle, over four seasons at Alabama-Birmingham. He was a two-time All-Conference USA first-team selection (2010 & 2011) and was named the conference’s best offensive lineman his senior year.
