Oakland Raiders Acquire WR Trevor Davis

ALAMEDA, Calif. – The Oakland Raiders have acquired WR Trevor Davis via a trade with the Green Bay Packers, the club announced Thursday.

As part of the trade terms, Oakland will send an undisclosed 2020 draft pick to the Packers in return for Davis.

Originally a fifth-round selection (163rd overall) by the Packers in the 2016 NFL Draft, the 6-foot-1, 188-pound speedster out of Cal has appeared in 31 games over his first four seasons, recording nine receptions for 122 receiving yards and one touchdown, while primarily being used as a return special list, logging 40 punt returns for 449 yards (11.2 avg.) and 35 kick returns for 791 yards (22.6 avg.).

In 2018, his year was cut short due to a hamstring injury that landed him on the Reserve/Injured List two times, allowing him to only appear in two contests throughout the campaign. In 2017, Davis appeared in all 16 contests for the first time in his career, serving as the primary returner for both kickoffs and punts. He tallied 24 punt returns for 289 yards (12.0 avg.) and 31 kickoff returns for 707 yards (22.8 avg.). His 12.0-yard punt return average ranked third in the NFL and sixth in club annals for a single season. Davis’ average of 12.1 yards per punt return since entering the NFL in 2016 ranks second league wide.

A native San Francisco, Calif., the former Cal Bear played two seasons at his local program, totaling 2,300 all-purpose yards, including 1,071 receiving yards and seven touchdown scores on 64 receptions, 1,110 yards and two touchdowns on 45 kickoff returns and 115 yards on 14 punt returns. During his senior year in 2015, Davis notched a team-best 1,407 all-purpose yards including 672 receiving yards on 40 receptions for a 16.8-yard average that ranked second on the team.

In a corresponding move, the Raiders have waived DB Juston Burris.

Oakland Raiders Honor Linda Sanchez Through NFL Hispanic Heritage Leadership Awards

The Oakland Raiders selected Linda Sanchez, co-founder of Casa Sin Fronteras, as the recipient of the NFL Hispanic Heritage Leadership Award. The NFL and the Hispanic Heritage Foundation (HHF) have partnered for the ninth annual NFL Hispanic Heritage Leadership Awards during the 2019 celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month. The awards recognize the contributions of Hispanic leaders in each NFL market.

The Raiders honored Sanchez during a pregame ceremony last Sunday, September 15, before the Silver and Black played the Kansas City Chiefs at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum.

Sanchez, 28, is from Oaxaca, Mexico. Her activism started while organizing for the Federal Dream Act when she was a high school student. While attending UC Berkeley, she co-founded Casa Sin Fronteras (formally known as Dream House), was the coordinator of Entre Familia, a scholarship platform for undocumented youth pre-CA Dream Act and most recently founded Fuerza Indígena, a social enterprise to politically and economically uplift Fruitvale’s indigenous Mam population. She is deeply committed to uplifting migrant youth voices and working in collaboration with them to find their voice and power.

Each award recipient selects an organization of their choice that serves the local Hispanic community to receive a $2,000 donation.  Sanchez has chosen the UC Berkeley Chicano Latino Alumni Association- Undocumented Student program to receive this donation.
