Raiders Claim TE Paul Butler Off Waivers From Lions

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — The Las Vegas Raiders have claimed tight end Paul Butler off waivers from the Detroit Lions.

Butler spent time on the Raiders practice squad the past two seasons before signing with the Lions earlier this offseason. He joins a crowded tight end room that includes Darren Waller, Jason Witten, Foster Moreau, Derek Carrier and Nick O'Leary.

The Raiders also announced that backup quarterback Nathan Peterman and tackle David Sharpe signed their restricted free agent tenders worth about $2.1 million.
