Raiders to bring back Joselio Hanson

Jason O. Watson

The Raiders are re-signing cornerback Joselio Hanson according to Adam Caplan.

The Raiders have been busy the past couple days. They have been busy filling out the secondary in particular. Last weekend they signed free agent CB Tracy Porter, Monday they signed free agent CB Mike Jenkins, earlier Tuesday they signed Free Agent Safety Usama Young, and now reports have them re-signing cornerback Joselio Hanson.

Hanson played slot corner for the Raiders last season. The Raiders utilized his services in the slot on 53% of the snaps and he held up well. There were not a lot of options on the market and the Raiders were thin at corner so it made a great deal of sense to bring him back into the fold.

The veteran corner has eight seasons in the NFL, mostly with the Philadelphia Eagles. He spent training camp with the Eagles last year before they released him in a roster cutdown. The Raiders, in much need of secondary help, swooped him up to take over their vacant slot corner spot.

The 5-9, 175 pound corner appeared in all 16 games, starting 5. He matched a career high 2 interceptions and notched a new career high with 60 combined tackles (48 solo) along with 5 passes defended.

The Raiders secondary has gone from sparse to well-populated in a matter of days as the Raiders fill out their roster prior to off-season workouts which begin in less than a week.
