Raiders signed LB Tahir Whitehead, formerly of the Lions.
Off-ball linebacker has been a persistent problem on GM Reggie McKenzie's watch, as the Raiders have been average or worst against the run and gotten hurt badly by tight ends over the past four seasons. 28-year-old Whitehead's strength is run defense, but he has experience playing in sub-packages and offers sneaky blitz potential. Whitehead was primarily an edge rusher at Temple. Mar 15 - 10:08 PM
