Jay Alford, a former third-round draft pick by the New York Giants, has signed with the Raiders, according to Profootballtalk.com
Alford’s position coach with the Giants is Raiders defensive line coach Mike Waufle. His signature play was a 10-yard sack of Tom Brady with 19 seconds to play in Super Bowl XLII, helping to secure a 17-14 win over the previous unbeaten Patriots. He spent last season on injured reserve following knee surgery. He was also the snapper for field goals and extra points as a rookie.
Bryant has been out with an elbow injury but was back at practice Monday.
Assuming this report is correct, will be interesting to see during open locker room who is missing. Alford would be the first member of the 53-man roster who wasn’t with the Raiders when training camp began.
