ALAMEDA, Calif. – The Oakland Raiders have claimed T T.J. Clemmings and T Justin Murray via waivers from the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals, respectively, the club announced Sunday.
Clemmings was originally a fourth-round pick (110th overall) by the Minnesota Vikings in the 2015 NFL Draft. Over his three-year career, the 6-foot-5, 309-pound tackle has appeared in 37 games and made 32 starts, while also starting in his lone postseason appearance in 2015. Last season, Clemmings appeared in six contests and made two starts in his only season with the Washington Redskins.
Murray, originally signed by the Denver Broncos as an undrafted free agent in 2016, spent 2017 on the practice squads of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New Orleans Saints, before being signed to the Cincinnati Bengals for the remainder of the year. Murray has not appeared in an NFL contest.
In corresponding moves, the Raiders have waived T David Sharpe and OL Ian Silberman.
Sharpe was originally drafted by the club in the fourth round (129th overall) of the 2017 NFL Draft. In his one year with the team, he appeared in five contests and made two starts.
Silberman, originally a sixth-round selection (190th overall) by the San Francisco 49ers in 2015, re-joined the team this past offseason after spending a portion of the 2016 season on the club's practice squad. Silberman has played in one contest in his career and has also spent time with the Cleveland Browns, Indianapolis Colts and New England Patriots.
