The Raiders are attempting to add some depth at the safety position. Tuesday they signed Packers restricted free agent safety Sean Richardson to an offer sheet.

Richardson was given an original round tender from the Packers this offseason and since he was undrafted, the Raiders wouldn't have to surrender a draft pick should the Packers choose not to match the offer.

The Packers have five days to match the offer sheet. Should they choose not to match, Richardson would officially be a Raider.

The 6-3, 213-pound safety has appeared in 27 games over the past three seasons in Green Bay with no starts. He saw action as a reserve safety in all 16 games last season for a total of 135 snaps. In that time he collected a career high 26 tackles (22 solo).

He played both free safety and strong safety for the Packers in this career.

He is yet another former Packer player added by Reggie McKenzie, but he joined the Packers after McKenzie had left.
