The Oakland Raiders 2012 season is complete, but that hasn't stopped Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie from making moves. McKenzie and the Raiders signed three players to reserve/future contracts on Thursday, just one day after adding six players on similar deals on Wednesday.
Oakland signed running back Jon Hoese, defensive tackle Johnny Jones and wide receiver Isaiah Williams on Thursday. Both Hoese and Jones have a history with McKenzie after spending time in Green Bay while he was with the Packers. Hoese spent time on Green Bay's practice squad in 2011 while Jones has spent time with the Packers and Miami Dolphins. Williams has bounced around the league with stops in Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Seattle and Arizona.
While the Raiders season is over, the league year in the NFL doesn't end for a few more months. By signing players to reserve/future contracts a team can retain a player's rights for next season without having to clear space on the active roster.
