Las Vegas Raiders Claim CB Javelin Guidry from the Arizona Cardinals
Announced today, the Las Vegas Raiders claim CB Javelin Guidry off of waivers from the Arizona Cardinals, according to Guidry’s agent. Just in time for a revenge match, the Raiders will face off against the Cards next week for their Week 2 matchup at Allegiant Stadium.
The former University of Utah cornerback ran a 4.29, 40 yard dash back at the 2020 NFL combine, but went undrafted and eventually was signed by the New York Jets. Guidry played in 11 games in his 2020 rookie year while starting in two while recording 21 tackles, 15 solo tackles, and four forced fumbles, which tied the most by any rookie that season and the third most amongst all players in 2020.
Last season, Guidry played in all 17 season games and started in three. He recorded 45 tackles, 32 solo tackles, and three passes defensed.
The Raiders claim CB Javelin Guidry following an injury to cornerback Anthony Averett who went on the injured reserve. Due to this, Averett will be missing the next four games. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, Averett broke his right thumb during the season opener game against the Chargers.
After being waived by the Jets on August 29, Guidry was claimed by the Cardinals the very next day. Although the Utah Ute cornerback didn’t play in Arizona’s Week 1 game against the Kansas City Chiefs, there are better days planned ahead for the cornerback with the Silver and Black.
As the Raiders claim CB Javelin Guidry, he becomes the second cornerback added to the roster on Monday after Nickell Roby-Coleman.
