Raiders sign safety Larry Asante and waive/injured safety Shelton Johnson

The Raiders signed free agent safety Larry Asante Wednesday, a who has had stops with the Indianapolis Colts, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Cleveland Browns and has played in 17 games.

Asante’s most recent work was with the Colts last season, where he played in five games, primarily on special teams.

To make room for Asante, the Raiders waived/injured safety Shelton Johnson. Johnson will go on the injured reserve list or negotiate an injury settlement once he cleared waivers.

Earlier in the day, the Raiders signed linebacker Spencer Hadley and waived/injured linebacker Marshall McFadden.

    Never been a Browns fan. First NFL game was Browns vs Raiders on MNF in 1971. I rooted for the Raiders, who won 34-20. Autographs that night: Madden, Tatum, Davidson, Davis, Buehler, Biletnikoff.

  • r8ter4evr

    Ya
    No comparison yet
    But about the same size as Singletary
    You never know
    Probably wishful thinking

  • Howard Benner

    Sorry. . .nothing legit in the naked city. . .

    Watched him play at ND for years. So I know he sucks. Runs straight up like Taiwan, suspect hands. And I know he left ND and went to the draft because he got caught w his cell phone at a team dinner and didn’t wanna take the consequences. Is there more to the story? Probably. But it boils down to the fact that he’s immature and frankly, not good enough To keep around and see if he grows up.
