Raiders Add Three to the Roster
Adeniji (6-3, 213) played his collegiate football at Oregon State. Originally from Eugene, Ore., Adeniji transferred from Orange Coast College and walked on at Oregon State. In 2008, Adeniji contributed primarily on special teams, and tallied a blocked punt, which he scooped up and returned for a 27-yard touchdown.
In 2009, Adeniji caught 57 passes for 807 yards and five touchdowns. Against Brigham Young in the Las Vegas Bowl, Adeniji hauled in eight catches for 106 yards and one touchdown.
The Raiders also added two offensive linemen to their roster, Allen Smith and Elliot Vallejo.
Vallejo (6-7, 315) was originally signed to the Raiders' practice squad on December 14, 2009, but was released eight days later. Vallejo originally played his college ball at UCLA, but transferred to UC Davis in 2002. He signed with the Arizona Cardinals as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2007, but has never logged any playing time.
Allen Smith (6-4, 300) is a former Stanford Cardinal, who has had a rough career as far as injuries are concerned. He started well enough, as he was named to the Pac-10's All-Freshman team in 2005. In 2006, Smith started all 12 games at left tackle. Three games into the 2007 season, Smith went down with a torn patella tendon. In 2008, while still recovering form the torn patella tendon, Smith fractured his kneecap while weightlifting during his rehab. After receiving a sixth year of eligibility, Smith sprained his ACL in his right knee following a win against Arizona State.
