Former #Eskimos DL Kendal Vickers is expected to sign a futures deal with the #Raiders, pending a physical. I’m told he had an exceptional workout with them. @CFLonTSN @DreadHead_Vick @tsn1260 https://t.co/xhtnYEfzkn

After going unselected in the 2018 NFL draft, Vickers inked an undrafted free agent contract with the Pittsburgh Steelers. He made one tackle in four pre-season games prior to being released at the end of training camp.
The University of Tennessee product made 109 total tackles, 13.5 tackles for loss, 4.5 sacks and forced four fumbles during three seasons, 42 games, with the Volunteers. The 24-year-old Vickers has the size — six-foot-three, 295 pounds — to be a disruptor in the NFL.
