Monday, April 16th, 2012 at 9:11 pm in Oakland Raiders.
The Raiders announced the signing of unrestricted free agent safety Matt Giordano Monday, who led the team with five interceptions and is coming off the best season of his career in Oakland.
Giordano’s interceptions accounted for 130 yards in returns, and he also had 70 tackles and his first career sack after playing from 2005 through 2008 with Indianapolis, five games in 2009 with Green Bay and nine games in 2010 with New Orleans.
Aside from Giordano’s production last season with Oakland, Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie was with the Packers’ personnel department in 2009 and head coach Dennis Allen was the defensive backs coach in New Orleans for the nine games Giordano played there in 2010.
A Cal product, Giordano started nine games as starting free safety Michael Huff struggled with injuries.
