The Raiders Waived Pierson-El on Saturday, Josh Alper of Yahoo Sports reports.
Analysis: Pierson-El has spent two consecutive offseasons with the Raiders, but he's yet to crack the team's regular-season roster. He also spent time with the Salt Lake Stallions in the AAF.
The Raiders re-signed Pierson-El on Thursday.
Analysis: Pierson-El spent time with the Raiders last preseason after having played for the Salt Lake Stallions in the AAF, but he wasn't able to parley his way onto a spot on the 53-man roster. He'll now get another chance to compete for a depth role.
Pierson-El caught six of 10 targets for 38 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's preseason win over the Packers.
Analysis: His seven-yard score in the fourth quarter put the Raiders in position for a game-winning field goal on their final drive of the game, and the second-year wide receiver led the team in catches and targets. Pierson-El remains buried on the depth chart, however, and this performance likely wasn't enough on its own to secure him a spot on the 53-man roster.
Pierson-El signed a contract with the Raiders on Monday, the Raiders' official site reports.
Analysis: Pierson-El joins the Raiders after spending time with Salt Lake Stallions of the AAF, where he led the team with 36 receptions for 414 yards and one touchdown in eight contests. Pierson-El also spent time with the Redskins last offseason.
