    Default AJ Cole trying out with Oakland Raiders

    The one player that was not drafted whom I thought had excellent pro potential was AJ Cole. He wasn't drafted simply because he is a punter and it is very rare for kickers to get drafted. They are normally signed as free agents. Cole received great interest from multiple teams, and he and the Raiders signed the dotted line. Cole is an unrestricted free agent, meaning the Raiders can cut him or retain him as they see fit. However, with Cole working out in competition with last year's punter, he does at least earn a signing bonus payment from that contract.

    These evaluations remain ongoing, so we will see if Cole can make the active squad.

    Cole did a lot more than try out. He made the roster as their starting punter!

    Congrats to AJ!
