Takk McKinley Sticking With Raiders Defense

The Las Vegas Raiders placed former Falcons first-rounder Takk McKinley (groin) on Injured Reserve on Friday, so they will hang onto him instead of waiving him after he failed physicals with the Bengals and 49ers previously. It's been another long and disappointing season for the pass-rusher from UCLA, as he was cut by Atlanta after making a social-media scene because he wasn't dealt at the trading deadline. For now, the 25-year-old will just give the Raiders some intriguing pass-rush depth while he gets back to 100 percent health. McKinley played in only four games for the Falcons this year and has an underwhelming 79 total tackles and 17.5 sacks in 49 games played in his first four years in the NFL.

Raiders Defense Adds Takk McKinley Off Waivers

The Las Vegas Raiders made a splash earlier Monday by signing Vic Beasley to their practice squad, following up that announcement by claiming outside linebacker/defensive end Takk McKinley off of waivers. McKinley has already failed a physical with two different organizations, with the Raiders hoping to add him to their defense for the stretch run of the 2020 season. In four starts with the Falcons this year, McKinley has compiled eight tackles, seven quarterback hits, one pass defended, and one sack. The move may come as particularly appealing to McKinley, who could get a chance to face Atlanta as soon as Sunday, as the Raiders are set to travel to take on the Falcons in Week 12. Even with McKinley in the mix, the Raiders defense remains outside of fantasy consideration in all but the deepest of season-long formats.

49ers Claim Takkarist McKinley Off Waivers

The San Francisco 49ers claimed former Falcons first-round defensive end Takkarist McKinley off waivers from the Bengals on Wednesday, according to a source. The Bengals claimed McKinley off waivers from the Falcons but put him back on waivers when he failed a physical. The 25-year-old hasn't played since Week 7 due to a groin injury and has managed to suit up for just four games this season. He's been a first-round bust to this point in his career with just 17.5 sacks and 79 combined tackles in his four seasons with Atlanta. The Niners have had plenty of injuries on their defensive line this year, so they're taking a flier on McKinley's talent.
