Raiders Claim DB Coye Francies

The Raiders have claimed defensive back Coye Francies on waivers, the team announced Wednesday. Francies, who played in eight games with the Browns from 2009-10, was released by the Seahawks on Monday.

His addition gives the Raiders a player with college and NFL experience as a kickoff returner. Francies, who will see his former teammates in the Raiders’ preseason finale Thursday at CenturyLink Field, has returned three kickoffs for 66 yards (22.0 avg.) this preseason.

To make room on the team’s active roster, the Raiders Tuesday waived defensive back Conroy Black.

The Raiders also moved OL Zach Hurd (head), FB Rashawn Jackson (hip), and OL Ed Wang (shoulder) from waived/injured to injured reserve.

    No return game is about one player. That’s why we have a return “team.” And ours are, let’s say, under-developed. That being said, “Jacoby won’t you please come home!”
