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.
