BEAVERS FOOTBALL: Leonhardt makes Raiders practice squad

Email

BEMIDJI -- Brian Leonhardt will be playing on the Oakland Raiders practice squad at the start of the new season -- at least for now.

The former Bemidji State tight end was released from the Raiders active roster on Aug. 31 -- the final day for teams to make cuts and finalize their active 53-man roster.

But the team liked him enough to re-sign him to the seven-man practice squad.
