Raiders Ink Three Players to “Reserve/Futures” Contracts

The Raiders signed three players, including a pair of fifth-round picks, to “Reserve/Futures” contracts on Friday, a league source confirmed on Friday.

The three players signed were quarterback Rhett Bomar, defensive end Hall Davis and defensive back Curtis Taylor.

Bomar was a 2009 fifth-round pick (151st overall) out of Sam Houston State by the New York Giants. Bomar spent most of his first two seasons on the Giants’ practice squad and has yet to appear in a regular season game. The Giants added Bomar to the 53-man roster at the end of the 2009 season and the Minnesota Vikings signed him to their 53-man roster when injuries hit the quarterback position in December.

Bomar was waived by the Vikings in August and had a workout with the Raiders last Tuesday.

Davis was a 2010 fifth-round pick (149th overall) out of Louisiana-Lafayette by the St. Louis Rams. Davis was traded to the Washington Redskins towards the end of his first training camp and released the following day. Davis spent most of last season on the Tennessee Titans practice squad before being activated and appearing in one game last December.

Released by the Titans in September, Davis had workouts with the New England Patriots, Green Bay Packers, Carolina Panthers and was part of the Raiders’ group workout last Tuesday.

Taylor was a 2009 seventh-round pick (219th overall) out of LSU by the San Francisco 49ers. The 6-foot-2, 209-pound safety had seven special teams tackles in 12 games over his two seasons with the 49ers, each of which was finished on injured reserve. Waived in September, Taylor worked out for the Arizona Cardinals in October and last Tuesday with the Raiders.
