Former California wide receiver Jordan Vesey caught two passes for the Las Vegas Raiders in last Thursday’s victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars, but it clearly wasn’t enough. Vesey was released by the Raiders on Wednesday.
Vesey is currently a free agent and is looking to build a relationship with another team, but his best bet may be to sign with some team’s practice squad.
Vesey signed with the Raiders in May, but was released Wednesday to make room for wide receiver Chris Lacy, who signed with the Raiders this week.
Vesey, 27, caught two passes from former Cal quarterback Chase Gerbers in the fourth quarter of the Raiders’ exhibition opener against Jacksonville. Vesey also caught a 19-yard pass from Garbers that was nullified by an offensive penalty.
Vesey was targeted five times that game and had a chance to make a long pass early in the game, but collapsed in double coverage.
Vesey played for Cal in 2016 and 2017 and had 38 receptions for 491 yards and six touchdowns in 2017.

He was not selected in the 2018 NFL Draft and has been on many NFL teams, mostly practice teams. He appeared in his two games last year with the Texans in Houston, achieving his first and only regular season action, but no passes were thrown in his direction.
