ALAMEDA (AP) -- An NFL arbitrator has denied a grievance filed by former Raiders coach Lane Kiffin in an attempt to claim the lost salary he maintained he was still owed by the team.

Raiders executive John Herrera issued a statement to The Associated Press on Monday stating the ruling was an overwhelming victory for the Raiders.

In the statement, Herrera said the league stated that Kiffin showed "a stunning lack of concern" for the terms of his contract and for the rules of the club.

Kiffin was fired in September 2008 for cause because of what owner Al Davis described as acts of insubordination and lying by the coach.

Kiffin filed his grievance with the NFL in October 2008 to claim the lost salary he maintained he was still owed by the team for the remainder of his two-year contract.

The next Primetime? Carr receives compliment after imitating Neon Deion

Watch out Jalen Richard. You have some competition for your punt returning job.

Okay, not really.

But quarterback Derek Carr got in on the action Tuesday. In a video posted by the Raiders on Twitter, Carr fielded a punt and ran it back to the endzone for a touchdown.

He proceeded to do Deion Sanders' touchdown dance and that elicited a response from the Pro Football Hall of Famer.

"That's 1 of the many reasons why I gots mad love for @derekcarrqb he is the #Truth," Sanders wrote in a quote tweet.

Carr has yet to respond.

Raiders place two on Non-Football Injury List

The Raiders placed two players on the Non-Football Injury List, the team announced on Tuesday.

Linebacker Ben Heeney and tight end Cooper Helfet both count against the 90-man roster.

The Raiders' first team practice of training camp is scheduled for Saturdya.

Heeney was selected in the 5th round of the 2015 draft out of Kansas.

After appearing in 15 games a rookie, he saw action in just four games last season.

Over 23 games for the Seahawks in 2014 and 2015, Helfet caught 25 passes for 315 yards and two touchdowns.

He spent time on the Raiders' practice squad last season.
