The Oakland Raiders announced on Tuesday the signing of linebacker Vic So'oto.
So'oto comes from the Green Bay Packers, the former team of Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie as well.
The 6-foot-2, 255-pound linebacker played in seven games for the Packers last season after signing as a non-drafted free agent out of BYU. So'oto recorded seven tackles and one sack while playing on both special teams and defense.
So'oto is the second cousin of the late San Diego Chargers linebacker Junior Seau.
The team also announced that they have waived linebacker Carl Ihenacho to make room for So'oto on the roster. The Raiders also released defensive tackle Vaughn Meatoga from the practice squad.
