Raiders re-sign DE Moss

The Raiders reportedly have agreed to terms on a one-year, $1.25 million contract with veteran defensive end Jarvis Moss.

The news comes courtesy of The Sports Xchange. Teams and veteran players are allowed to negotiate contracts right now, but they can’t make anything official until 3 p.m. on Friday.

Moss, who turns 27 on Aug. 3, appeared in five games for the Raiders last season. He recorded one sack for the Raiders during that time.

Moss played his first three full NFL seasons for the Denver Broncos, both as a linebacker and defensive end. He was released by the Broncos after nine games last season.

This is yet another sign of the Raiders master plan of re-signing most of their own free agents and then plugging in the holes with other free agents, while avoiding the costly signings of big-name, low-production players such as DeAngelo Hall, Kwame Harris, Gibril Wilson and Javon Walker from previous offseasons.
