Criner was released by the Giants on Tuesday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

A fifth-round pick out of Arizona in 2012, Criner hasn't logged an NFL snap since 2013 with the Raiders. The fact that he couldn't make it out of the first round of cuts doesn't bode well for his future in the league.

Criner was waived by the Raiders on Tuesday, Steve Corkran of the Contra Costa Times reports.

Criner showed promise in his rookie season of 2012, but he caught just three passes all of last season and did not show enough during camp to stick around in Oakland. Criner is entering his third season, so there is a good chance he finds work with another team.

The Contra Costa Times observes Juron Criner has "far and away" looked like the best receiver on the field at Raiders OTAs.

At 6-foot-3 and 221 pounds, Criner is going to catch the eyes of observers in non-contact practices in gym shorts. The third-year receiver has appeared in just 13 career games due to injuries and has just 19 catches for 183 yards and one score to his name. He ended last season on I.R. with a shoulder injury and was active just once. Behind James Jones, the receiver depth chart is wide open.

Raiders placed WR Juron Criner on injured reserve with an AC sprain in his right shoulder, ending his season.

Criner has dealt with injures all season and wasn't close to returning from a shoulder issue suffered in Week 9. The former fifth-round pick will compete for a roster spot in 2014.

Juron Criner (shoulder) has been ruled out for Week 10.

Criner played 62 snaps, surprisingly, in last week's loss to the Eagles, but only due to pass-happy comeback mode. He's not on the re-draft league radar.

Raiders WR Juron Criner's right shoulder is in a sling.

Criner was active for the first time this season last week and played 63-of-92 snaps. He's been rather injury-prone his first two seasons. Criner battled hip and ankle issues as a rookie. He seems unlikely to play in Week 10.

Raiders WR Juron Criner played 63-of-92 snaps in his 2013 debut Sunday.

Criner was on the field more than either Rod Streater or Jacoby Ford. He parlayed the snaps into three catches for 22 yards. Criner hasn't moved ahead of Streater on the depth chart, but the playing time is an indication he won't be back on the inactives list any time soon. Criner is not a re-draft league consideration.

Raiders declared WR Juron Criner, SS Tyvon Branch, LB Martez Wilson, DE Ryan Robinson, C Andre Gurode, T Menelik Watson, and T Tony Pashos inactive for Week 8 against the Steelers.

Darren McFadden is back near 100 percent -- for now -- and the Raiders have C Stefen Wisniewski again following a multi-week knee injury.

Raiders second-year WR Juron Criner has been "outshined" by waiver pickup Andre Holmes in training camp.

A onetime favorite of some draftniks, possession receiver prospect Criner was all but a zero as a rookie and has made precious little noise in his second training camp. He finished 2012 with 16 catches for 151 yards (9.4 YPR) and was a healthy scratch for four games. Criner is worth dropping in Dynasty leagues.
