Pat Lee #22 of the Green Bay Packers
The Oakland Raiders have officially signed former Green Bay Packers free agent cornerback, Pat Lee. He becomes the second Packer defensive back to follow Raiders new general manager Reggie McKenzie over from the Packers.
Here is what the Raiders' official press release had to say about the acquisition of Pat Lee:
Lee, 28, played four seasons for the Green Bay Packers, seeing action in 32 games with one start. Lee tied for the team lead with 12 special teams tackles last season after recording seven special teams stops in 2010.
"Pat is a talented player who we are happy to add to our defensive backfield group," said Raiders General Manager Reggie McKenzie.
The Miami native saw extensive action on defense in the second half of Super Bowl XLV after injuries depleted the Packers' secondary.
He played in 16 games in 2011 and 11 games with one start in 2010, when he also returned 13 kickoffs for 265 yards. On defense, Lee's career totals include 21 tackles (19 solo) and one pass defensed. Lee originally entered the NFL as Green Bay's second round selection in the 2008 draft out of Auburn.
Lee will compete for a spot in the cornerback rotation but is seen mostly as a return specialist at this time.
