Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie announced Friday that the team has signed punter Daniel Zychlinski.
Zychlinski was a five-year senior at Stanford University and appeared in 41 games while punting 97 times for 4,096 yards (42.2-yard average).
The 6-foot-3, 208-pound punter’s best season came in 2012 when he punted 66 times for 2,846 yard for a school’s fifth-best 43.1-yard average.
Prior to attending Stanford, Scout.com ranked Zychlinski the No. 9 punter prospect coming out of high school.
With the young Marquette King seemingly locked into the starting punter role for the Raiders, Zychlinski will likely be an offseason leg to assist with the workouts through the offseason and be there in case King gets injured.
