Sunday the Seattle Seahawks trimmed the roster from 90 down to 81 by terminating the contracts of Joey Hunt and Branden Jackson while placing seven players on waivers. One of the players the team sent to the waiver wire was offensive lineman Jordan Roos. While the other six players who went on waivers cleared, Roos will soon be reporting to a new team.

With the Las Vegas Raiders, Roos will be reunited with Tom Cable, under whom he played during his rookie season in 2017. At 6’3”, 302 pounds Roos was never the massive mauler that Solari prefers on the interior of the offensive line, but his combination of strength (41 reps on the bench) and explosiveness are right up Cable’s alley. Set to enter his fourth season in the league, Roos, who turned 27 earlier this month, has two accrued seasons and would be a restricted free agent after the 2020 season if he sticks with the Raiders.
He never really got much of a shot to show what he had with the Seahawks, playing just 48 regular season offensive snaps during his three years with the team, though all 48 of those snaps came in 2017 while Cable was the offensive line coach, so it’s possible he’ll earn more of a shot with Las Vegas.
