Heath is the sixth free agent the Raiders have agreed to a contract with and the fourth in the past five hours. He joins former Dallas teammates tight end Jason Witten and defensive tackle Maliek Collins as someone will need to find a realtor in Las Vegas.
Heath started 13 games last season. He is considered a borderline starter, who is also a great special teams player. The Raiders tried for safeties earlier in free agency.
They could also add one early in the draft. For now, Heath will probably compete for a starting job with Erik Harris and possibly Karl Joseph, if he returns in free agency.
Heath, who will turn 29 in May, has played his entire seven-season career in Dallas. He was a standout special teamer for Rich Bisaccia, who is the Raiders’ special teams coach.
