2014 NFL free agency: Oakland Raiders sign Tarell Brown


The Oakland Raiders haven’t made quite the splash this free agency period that we all thought they would, considering the money at their disposal, but that changed a bit on Friday as the team announced they’ve signed former San Francisco 49ers cornerback, Tarell Brown.


Brown has spent his first seven seasons in the NFL with the 49ers where he has started 47 games, recorded 213 tackles and 11 interceptions.

At least for the psyche of the organization, this signing was much-needed after the debacle this week with Rodger Saffold when the two came to terms, but the deal wasn’t able to be signed because of problems with Saffold’s physical.

Still, though, Brown is a great addition to the Raiders’ secondary, and they need it in the pass-happy AFC West. Having to deal with Philip Rivers, Peyton Manning, and as we saw last year, Alex Smith and the Chiefs, any help in the secondary is essential.

But, for the time being, it was nice to see the Raiders make some sort of splash this week.

    Good sign… Hopefully he will play good for us. I still think we should’ve kept Porter, but what’s done is done.

    Foo sucks, should stay in the gay bay Whiner

  • Daniel Rodriguez

    An ok signing but compared to Denver who had way less cap space then us, we are going NO WHERE. It’s time to start calling for Mckenzie’s job. We should of known he was bad news when he fired Hue Jackson. Enough is enough.
