The Raiders announced Tuesday that they have signed one more player to a reserve/future contract, adding safety Tony Dye.
Dye, a 5-foot-10, 205-pound safety, originally signed with the Cincinnati Bengals as an undrafted free agent in May of 2012 but missed all of 2012 while on the Reserve/Injured list with an ankle injury.
Dye was then waived by the Bengals following the 2013 training camp but quickly signed onto their practice squad. Dye was eventually elevated to the active roster in November and appeared in one game, recording just one special teams tackle before being waived again in December before re-signing to the practice squad.
The three-year starter at UCLA recorded a team-high 95 tackles during his senior year.
The Raiders have now signed 14 players to reserve/future contracts.
