ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — The Oakland Raiders have signed running back Michael Dyer and five other players who tried out at the team's rookie minicamp.

Oakland also signed cornerbacks SaQwan Edwards and Travell Dixon; guard Mitch Bell; defensive end Gary Wilkins and receiver Austin Willis on Monday.

Dyer rushed for 3,039 yards and 22 touchdowns on 578 carries in college at Auburn and Louisville. He helped the Tigers win the national title in 2010 before transferring first to Arkansas State and then Louisville.

The Raiders waived running backs Terrance Cobb and Gus Johnson; cornerback Chance Carey; defensive back Vernon Kearney and linebacker Braylon Mitchell. Receiver Jeremy Gallon was also waived with an injured designation.
