The Las Vegas Raiders have added a punter to their roster.

On Monday, the Silver and Black announced the signing of free-agent punter Corliss Waitman.

A graduate of South Alabama, Waitman initially signed as an undrafted free agent with the Pittsburgh Steelers in May of 2020.

The 6-foot-2, 210-pound punter appeared in 38 games for his alma mater. He finished with a punting average of 41.7 yards per punt with 50 punts which were downed inside the 20-yard line.

During his junior season, Waitman was recognized as first-team All-Sun Belt Conference after averaging a school record of 45.24 yards per punt.

As a senior, he punted 67 times for a total of 2,792 yards.

While in no way will Waitman replace A.J. Cole as the starting punter in the Raiders organization, for the Silver and Black to sign a backup punter this late in the offseason means Waitman has some potential.

In a corresponding move, kicker Dominik Eberle has been waived by Las Vegas.
