Raiders officially sign CB Joselio Hanson

Joselio Hanson #21 of the Philadelphia Eagles celebrates after recovering a fumble against the San Francisco 49ers

The Raiders have announced they have signed cornerback Joselio Hanson, who was released by the Eagles on Friday in their final cuts. The eight-year veteran corner has spent the past seven seasons with the Eagles.

Last season when the Eagles signed Nnamdi Asomugha, many thought Hanson would be an odd man out but the Eagles elected to hold onto him. At that time it was thought the Raiders would have been interested.

The Inglewood, Calif., native entered the NFL with the 49ers as a undrafted free agent out of Texas Tech in 2003. He played one season for the 49ers before spending the past seven seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles, has played in 104 career games with 19 starts. His career totals include 237 tackles (170 solo), four interceptions and 3.5 sacks.

The 5-foot-9, 180-pound Hanson, whose first name is pronounced ho-SELL-ee-oh, played in 16 games with one start for the Eagles last season. He played in seven playoff games during his seven seasons in Philadelphia.

The Raiders released cornerback Demarcus Van Dyke to make room for Hanson on the roster.
