Tuesday, September 25th, 2012 at 2:22 pm in Oakland Raiders.
The Raiders signed former Green Bay Packers linebacker Vic So’oto Tuesday and waived Carl Iheanacho, the club announced.
So’oto, 6-foot-2, 255 pounds, played in seven games with the Packers last season after being an undrafted free agent out of Brigham Young. He was placed on injured reserve Aug. 31 with an ankle injury and released Sept. 10 following an injury settlement.
A second cousin of Junior Seau, So’oto had seven tackles and one sack for Green Bay last season, playing on special teams and defense.
Ihenacho, out of San Jose State, a defensive end by trade, moved to linebacker this season and played sparingly through three games.
The Raiders also released defensive tackle Vaughn Meatoga from their practice squad.
Wide receiver Tori Gurley sent out a Tweet saying that he signed with the Raiders. A team spokesperson said no announcement was forthcoming Tuesday.
