Raiders Sign Napoleon Harris, Release Ricky Manning Jr.



ProFootballTalk was the first to report that the Oakland Raiders have signed former first round draft pick Napoleon Harris to a one-year contract. Harris, a seven year veteran in the league, has played in 100 games, made 73 starts, and amassed 481 tackles. Harris last played for the Minnesota Vikings as their middle linebacker when starter E.J. Henderson suffered an injury. This move provides the Raiders with more depth at LB and protects the LB corp. in case Kirk Morrison's elbow injury takes longer to heal than expected.

To make room on the 80-man roster, the Raiders released CB Ricky Manning Jr. I guess Stanford Routt's nickel-back job is secure.

Also, the Raiders removed Javon Walker from the PUP list, and he went through his first team practice today.
