Rams signed S Matt Giordano, formerly of the Raiders.
30-year-old Giordano was a 13-game starter in Oakland last year, primarily playing free safety after Michael Huff was forced to play cornerback. Giordano graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 69 safety among 88 qualifiers. On the bright side, PFF did like Giordano better than incumbent Craig Dahl (78th). In St. Louis, Giordano will push Darian Stewart to start at free safety. Fri, Jun 14, 2013 03:18:00 PM

The Rams hosted free agent safeties Matt Giordano and Abram Elam for visits this week.

Free agent Sherrod Martin was also in town, as we previously noted. The Rams are thin on experience at safety with rookie T.J. McDonald and injury-prone Darian Stewart. Giordano started 13 games for the Raiders last season, but he was victimized on a regular basis. Elam started seven games with the Chiefs.

Raiders safeties Matt Giordano (concussion) and Mike Mitchell (concussion) have been cleared for Thursday's game versus the Broncos.

They've passed all league-mandated tests. Giordano can resume trying to chase down tailbacks after they break through Oakland's porous front-seven. Punt returner Phillip Adams has yet to gain clearance from his concussion.

Raiders FS Matt Giordano exited Sunday's game against the Browns with a head injury.

Giordano has battled a concussion once already this season. Mike Mitchell came in to replace Giordano, but he later left with a head injury of his own. CB Joselio Hanson is now playing free safety.
Sun, Dec 2, 2012 06:29:00 PM

Sun, Nov 4, 2012 06:49:00 PM

Raiders re-signed S Matt Giordano.

Giordano drew scant interest on the open market despite recording career bests in tackles (70) and interceptions (5) last season as a nine-game starter. He returns to compete with Mike Mitchell for Oakland's third safety role.
Mon, Apr 16, 2012 10:41:00 PM

Giordano was acting as the third safety with Michael Huff and Tyvon Branch healthy.
Mon, Oct 10, 2011 10:32:00 AM

Raiders re-signed S Matt Giordano.

The 28-year-old Giordano is a special teamer without much defensive value. He'll be the Raiders' No. 4 safety until Michael Mitchell (knee) gets healthy.
Mon, Sep 5, 2011 03:16:00 PM

Sat, Sep 3, 2011 10:22:00 PM

Mon, Dec 27, 2010 11:33:00 PM

Giordano can be badly exposed in coverage, but he's essentially found a role as the league's floating special teamer.
Tue, Oct 12, 2010 05:23:00 PM

Falcons waived S Matt Giordano and DT Thomas Johnson.

Giordano has floated around the league, filling in whenever a team needs a special teamer in a pinch. He'll resurface elsewhere during the season. Johnson saw playing time in the defensive line rotation last season. The Falcons are stronger up front this year.
