According to a source from ESPN's Field Yates, the Oakland Raiders on Sunday claimed that the quarterback DeShone Kizer was exempt from the Green Bay Packers
The Raiders currently have three quarterbacks on their squad, so Kizers addition probably means that Team of Mike Glennon or Nathan Peterman, the current backup behind starter Derek Carr, deviates.
Kizer was eliminated less on Saturday two years after starting 15 games for the Cleveland Browns as a rookie. On March 15, 2018, the Packers Damarius Randall exchanged against Kizer against the Browns. While Randall flopped as a cornerback for the Packers, last year he started all but one game for the Browns and is expected to be a starter again this season.
23-year-old Kizer, who was the 52nd overall winner in the 201
Kizer played in three games to the relief of Rodgers last season, including three drives at the season opener, after Rodgers injured his knees against the bears, and then most of the season finale against Lions after Rodgers suffered a concussion would have. He threw two interceptions without touchdown in 42 pass attempts in these two games.
