  • Keelan Cole: Joins Raiders' practice squad

    Las Vegas signed Cole to its practice squad Tuesday.

    A week after being released by the same team, Cole has already found his way back into the fold. Cole appeared in 14 games with the Raiders in 2022, grabbing 10 catches for 141 yards, but barring injury, it doesn't seem likely he'll be elevated to the active roster any time soon.

  • Keelan Cole: Released by Las Vegas

    The Raiders released Cole on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Cole re-signed with the Raiders this offseason despite posting career-worst numbers (10-141-1) last year. The Raiders released Cole and Phillip Dorsett ahead of the initial 53-man roster deadline Tuesday, but Rapoport notes Las Vegas may sign the veteran wideouts to practice-squad deals before Week 1.

  • Raiders' Keelan Cole: Returning to Las Vegas

    Cole re-signed with the Raiders on a one-year deal Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Cole will return to Las Vegas, where he produced the worst season of his career last year, as the 29-year-old logged 10 catches, 141 yards and a touchdown on 21 targets, all of which were career lows. The former Jaguar and Jet will look to bounce back next season, or he could find himself at risk of not making the final roster in a crowded receiver room.

  • Raiders' Keelan Cole: Career-low 10 receptions with LV

    Cole caught one of two targets for five yards in the Raiders' regular-season finale, finishing his 2022 campaign with 10 receptions for 141 yards and one touchdown on 21 targets in 14 games.

    Cole reverted to a bench role late in the season upon fellow slot man Hunter Renfrow's return from injured reserve, and the former caught just four total passes for 44 yards across Weeks 10-14 despite logging at least 29 offensive snaps in each contest during that stretch. Cole will turn 30 years old this offseason as he hits free agency, so there's certainly no guarantee that he'll be back with the Raiders in 2023.

  • Raiders' Keelan Cole: Hauls in clutch touchdown

    Cole caught both his targets for 50 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 30-24 win over the Patriots.

    New England focused on shutting down Davante Adams and succeeded, holding him to four catches for 28 yards, but Derek Carr turned to other options instead and made Cole a surprise hero when the duo connected on a game-tying 30-yard TD -- Cole's first score of the season -- with only 32 seconds left in the fourth quarter. It's only the third time all season Cole has caught more than one pass in a game, and he has yet to haul in more than two. With Hunter Renfrow and Darren Waller both returning from injured reserve this week, the veteran wideout's role in the offense doesn't figure to grow.

  • Raiders' Keelan Cole: Likely to lose out on regular snaps

    Cole is expected to move out of a regular role in three-receiver sets Sunday against the Patriots after the Raiders reinstated Hunter Renfrow (oblique) from injured reserve Saturday, Paul Gutierrez of reports.

    Assuming he's not facing any significant snap-count restriction Sunday in his return from a five-game absence, Renfrow should operate as the Raiders' primary slot man, while Davante Adams and Mack Hollins serve as Las Vegas' main options out wide. During Renfrow's absence, Cole didn't make much of a mark in the box score; despite playing at least 50 percent of the snaps on offense in each of the past five games, he averaged just 1.4 targets per contest.

  • Raiders' Keelan Cole: Targeted once in loss

    Cole caught his only target for 11 yards in Thursday's 17-16 loss to the Rams.

    Cole's lack of productivity continued as the Raiders' entire passing game struggled against the Rams, with quarterback Derek Carr completing just 11 of 20 pass attempts for 137 yards to go along with a pair of interceptions. Cole's offensive snap count could decrease dramatically Week 15 against the Patriots if fellow slot receiver Hunter Renfrow (oblique) manages to return from injured reserve.

  • Raiders' Keelan Cole: Catchless versus Chargers

    Cole was not targeted in Sunday's 27-20 win over the Chargers.

    Cole failed to make an impact Sunday despite playing more than half of the Raiders' 61 offensive snaps. In the full-time slot role, he's caught just three passes for 33 yards on six targets in four games since Hunter Renfrow's (oblique) placement on injured reserve. Renfrow is eligible to return from IR on Thursday against the Rams, but his availability is uncertain with it being a short week.
