In another move to strengthen their special teams unit, and perhaps their defense as well, the Raiders have added former Ravens safety Brynden Trawick according to the National Football Post.
Trawick is expected to sign a one year deal worth above minimum. The 6-2, 215-pounder is described as "a big, physical player who excels on special teams."
Originally undrafted out of Troy, Trawick was a restricted free agent who the team didn't offer a RFA tender, making him an unrestricted free agent. He has appeared in 38 games in three seasons with the Ravens, including all 16 games last season with one start, collecting 7 tackles (5 solo) on defense. His 9 special teams tackles last season led the team.
His addition is not expected to change the Raiders' approach to free agency with regard to their need at the safety position. Currently they are linked to Cardinals restricted free agent Tony Jefferson.
