NAPA, Calif. (AP) — Menelik Watson's rookie season proved to be mostly a waste.

Watson arrived at his first training camp with the Oakland Raiders with an injured calf that forced him to miss much of the preseason. A knee injury just before the beginning of the regular season cost Watson a shot at a starting job.
