Oakland Raiders Again Embrace My Cause My Cleats Campaign

Alameda, Calif. — For the fourth straight year, the Oakland Raiders are joining with players across the NFL to wear custom cleats reflecting their commitment to charitable causes during this Sunday’s contest vs. the Tennessee Titans at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum.

The NFL recently announced that NFL players have the chance to share the causes that are important to them during all Week 14 games, as part of the NFL’s My Cause My Cleats campaign. The initiative is a culmination of collaborative work between the NFL and players across the league. 

According to the NFL, “More than 900 players are planning to showcase their causes on-field during My Cause My Cleats games this season. Selected causes represent hundreds of different charitable organizations with varying focuses. Out of the total, 24 percent of participating players will represent causes related to health and wellness, 18 percent place emphasis on cancer awareness and prevention, while 17 percent of player causes were youth-focused.”

The Raiders again this year are taking it one step further and involving the entire organization. In support of the My Cause My Cleats campaign, Raiders executives and front office staff, Raiderettes, gameday and stadium staff will recognize the important charitable causes by wearing personalized footwear during the game on Sunday.

Quarterback Derek Carr, whose son, Dallas, was born with intestinal malrotation, will wear cleats that raise awareness to support Valley Children’s Healthcare and hospitals that offer help to families with children in need. Running back DeAndre’ Washington will wear cleats to address gun violence and to honor his late sister.

For the third consecutive year, the NFL celebrated Unboxing Day, a league-wide unveiling of NFL players’ Week 14 customized cleats, on Giving Tuesday, December 3. Beginning on Unboxing Day and continuing through Week 14 games, players are sharing images of their cleats and the stories behind them on social media, using the hashtag #MyCauseMyCleats.

The NFL recently announced that players can also raise funds for their cause of choice through auctioning their cleats via NFL Auction; 100% of funds raised will be donated to charities selected by players– all designated charities must have 501c3 status. Fans may bid on game-issued player cleats at NFL.com/Auction and help players raise funds for their causes. In addition, fans can visit www.nfl.com/mycausemycleats to learn more about each player’s cause.

Raiders Sign Preston Brown; Place Dwayne Harris on IR

ALAMEDA, Calif. – The Oakland Raiders have signed free agent LB Preston Brown, the club announced Monday.

Brown, a 6-foot-1, 251-pound linebacker, joins the Raiders after spending the majority of the past two seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals. He spent his first four years (2014-17) with the Buffalo Bills after being selected in the third round (71st overall) of the 2014 NFL Draft. Over his career, Brown has appeared in 80 games and made 77 starts, compiling 598 tackles (341 solo), one sack, five interceptions including one returned for a touchdown, 14 passes defensed, three forced fumbles and five fumble recoveries. In one postseason contest in 2017, Brown logged six tackles (four).

Last season, Brown started all seven of his appearances for the Bengals before being placed on the Reserve/Injured List for the remainder of the season due to a knee injury. He recorded 42 stops (27), two interceptions and four passes defensed. From 2014-17 with the Bills, Brown’s 504 tackles ranked second-most in the NFL during that span, as he amassed at least 100 tackles in four consecutive campaigns, including a career-high 144 in 2017.

A native of Cincinnati, Ohio, Brown played four years at Louisville (2010-13), appearing in 52 games with 37 starts, compiling 301 tackles, including 26 for loss, seven sacks, one interception, five passes defensed, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries. 

Brown will wear jersey No. 54 with the Raiders.

In a corresponding move, the Raiders placed WR/RS Dwayne Harris on the Reserve/Injured List.

Oakland Raiders Activate CB Isaiah Johnson

ALAMEDA, Calif. – The Oakland Raiders have activated CB Isaiah Johnson to the 53-man roster, the club announced Monday.

Johnson was selected 129th overall by the Raiders in the 2019 NFL Draft. The 6-foot-2, 210-pound corner spent the first eight weeks of his rookie campaign on Reserve/Injured List after appearing in one game during the preseason.

Johnson was a four-year letterman at Houston, appearing in 45 games at Houston from 2015-18. After joining the Cougars as a wide receiver his freshman year, Johnson converted to cornerback following his sophomore season and appeared in 23 games and made 15 starts over his final two seasons, totaling 115 tackles (88 solo), four interceptions and 16 passes defensed.

In a corresponding move, the Raiders have released LB Brandon Marshall.
