Two days after he was released by the Cardinals, linebacker and special-teamer Lorenzo Alexander has found a new home. The Raiders announced today in a press release that they’ve signed Alexander, waiving linebacker Horace Miller in a corresponding roster move.
Alexander, 32, spent his first six NFL seasons with Washington, earning a Pro Bowl spot in 2012 for his work on special teams. Alexander joined the Cardinals prior to the 2013 season, and in 2014, he played just 53 defensive snaps, but contributed all season long for the team on kick and punt coverage.
An Oakland native, Alexander played his college ball at Cal, so it’s a homecoming for the eight-year veteran.
