Raiders claim Benson Mayowa off waivers

The Oakland Raiders have claimed defensive end Benson Mayowa off waivers from the Seattle Seahawks.

Mayowa was originally signed by the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent last year. He played in the first two games for Seattle last season, collecting two tackles (one solo), and was inactive for the remaining 14 regular season and three postseason contests. The 6-foot-3, 252-pounder played in 45 career games at the University of Idaho, recording 11 sacks, 11 forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries.

The Raiders waived-injured linebacker Kaelin Burnett.
