The National Football Post is reporting the Raiders have signed cornerback Joe Porter, citing a league source.
An undrafted free agent out of Rutgers in 2007, Porter spent time on the practice squad of the Green Bay Packers in 2007, during which time the secondary coach was Lionel Washington.
He spent last season with the Las Vegas Locomotives of the UFL.
He apparently has “Raider speed,” winning the indoor and outdoor 200 meter championship in the Big East.
Following the UFL season, Porter spent the last month of the NFL season on the practice squad of the Cleveland Browns but was not signed to a “futures” contract.
The Raiders have announced no transactions on their Web site since signing defensive tackle Ryan Boschetti on May 17.
