Multiple media outlets are reporting the addition of cornerback Shawntae Spencer to the Raiders roster.
Spencer fell out of favor with the 49ers last season and played in nine games with no starts. He is a veteran of 77 starts and is familiar with defensive coordinator Jason Tarver, who was the 49ers staff throughout his career in San Francisco.
Oakland has also been lined with cornerback Tracy Porter, who played for Dennis Allen in New Orleans. Spencer ideally would provide experience as a nickel corner should Oakland bring aboard another corner to go along with second-year players DeMarcus Van Dyke and Chimdi Chekwa.
The Raiders confirmed Spencer visited the facility Friday but have not yet confirmed his signing.
One plan considered by the previous coaching staff has apparently been scuttled. Free safety Michael Huff said Monday afternoon he will remain a safety.
