The Oakland Raiders announced today they have signed middle linebacker Omar Gaither. He played the second half of the 2012 season with the team and adds depth in the middle as well as special teams help.
Gaither came to the silver and black last season and started four games. He made appearances in seven accounting for 14 tackles. The former fifth round pick made 36 starts with the Philadelphia Eagles in five seasons.
He will get the chance to back-up Nick Roach at middle linebacker. The Raiders have rebuilt the position this offseason and now need to see the results in training camp and into the season.
