Bair joins 53-man list


The Oakland Raiders pointed a finger at Brandon Bair on Friday, adding him to the 53-man roster for Sunday's season finale at San Diego.

The South Fremont graduate is in his second year in the NFL and spent the first 16 weeks of the 2012 season as a member of Oakland's practice squad.

Bair was with the Kansas City Chiefs as a rookie.

Bair and cornerback Cory Nelms were promoted to replace cornerback Phillip Adams and defensive lineman Richard Seymour who the Raiders placed on injured reserve.

Bair is a 6-foot-7, 272-pound defensive tackle who starred on both sides of the line at Oregon.
