The Raiders added defensive end Denico Autry to their 90-man camp roster. The undrafted free agent joined the team on Tuesday.

Defensive tackle David Carter was released in a corresponding move.

Autry, a Mississippi State alum, was expected to sign with Green Bay, but the Packers rescinded their contract offer due to minor health concerns.

The Raiders jumped at the chance to bring the 6-foot-6, 265-pound defensive lineman. He joins a mix of defensive ends trying to provide depth behind Justin Tuck and LaMarr Woodley.
