Oakland also announced that safety Usama Young officially signed the two-year deal he agreed to last week to return to the Raiders.

Young joined Oakland last season on a one-year deal with expectations of becoming the starting free safety. But a little more than a month after signing Young, the Raiders signed Charles Woodson to a one-year deal to fill that spot.

Young moved into a backup role and played well when he got his chance on defense and special teams. He started once in his 12 games before being placed on injured reserve with a neck injury in December.

The 29-year-old Young had one interception, three passes defensed and 2 1/2 sacks last season with the Raiders, playing about one-quarter of the defensive snaps when healthy.
