The Oakland Raider have announced the signing of linebacker Korey Bosworth on Thursday.
Bosworth, 6-foot-1 and 230 pounds, is officially a first-year player but was initially signed by the Denver Broncos as an non-drafted free agent in 2010. Bosworth then spent parts of the last three training camps with the Detroit Lions in 2010, 2011, and 2012.
Bosworth attended UCLA for four years and played in all 51 games, including 25 starts over his final two seasons with the team. He comes from a family of NFL players as his brother, Kyle, is currently a linebacker for the Jacksonville Jaguars and his uncle, Brian Bosworth, is a former Seattle Seahawks linebacker.
The addition gives the Raiders needed depth at the linebacker position. Bosworth is expected to make the trip to Arizona to take on the Cardinals on Friday evening.
