The Raiders have been one of the busiest teams in the NFL during free agency, but they hadn’t signed anyone since Saturday.

Then on Thursday night, they struck again, signing former Cowboys defensive tackle Daniel Ross. He is the 12th free agent Las Vegas has signed, and a third of them have come from Dallas.

He played for new Raiders’ defensive line coach Rod Marinelli in Dallas. Ross, 27. joins fellow defensive tackle, Maliek Collins, tight end Jason Witten and safety Jeff Heath to join the Raiders this offseason.

Ross, 6-foot-3, 305 pounds, was with the Cowboys the past three seasons and has played in 16 games. He missed last season with a shoulder injury. He will have to earn a roster spot in training camp, but his experience with Marinelli gives Ross a head start.
