The Raiders continue to make moves. The team is expected to sign defensive back Brandon Facyson, per Vincent Bonsignore (via Twitter).

This will mark Facyson‘s second stint with the organization. The cornerback started nine of his 12 appearances for the Raiders during the 2021 season, finishing with 55 tackles, 13 passes defended, and one interception. That first Raiders gig followed a three-year stint with the Chargers.

Facyson spent the 2022 campaign in Indianapolis, starting four of his 16 games for the Colts. The defensive back finished the season with 28 tackles and six passes defended. Besides playing on defense, the 28-year-old also has plenty of experience playing on special teams, making him an intriguing addition for the Raiders.

This will stop a Facyson run under DC Gus Bradley. The veteran corner had played for the well-traveled DC at his past three stops. The Raiders, who then employed Bradley as their DC, claimed him off waivers from the Chargers in 2021; the Colts signed him to work with Bradley last year. Facyson is again ticketed to wear the Silver and Black, but he will be part of DC Patrick Graham‘s scheme.

The Raiders have already added one defensive back today, signing former Eagles starting safety Marcus Epps. Of course, the Raider also made headlines on the other side of the ball, adding quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo.
