Young has played in the NFL for 10 seasons for five different teams, for a total of 92 games and 21 starts. He appeared in four games with San Francisco last season.
Turning 33 next month, Young will go to training camp with a chance to make the team as a reserve, but he is far from a lock to make the roster.
Meanwhile, the Raiders cut some players, including backup quarterback DeShone Kizer, linebacker Te’Von Coney and tight end Paul Butler.
