As the free-agent market continues to cool off, a veteran player who entered the league as a first-round pick continues to find work, even if only as a reserve.
Defensive tackle William Joseph, a first-round pick in the 2003 draft, has agreed to terms with the Raiders on a one-year deal, per a league source.
Picked by the Giants, Joseph spent five years in New York and the last two in Oakland. He appeared in six games with no starts in 2009, and eight games with no starts in 2008.
According to the source, Joseph’s one-year contract is for the minimum salary of $755,000.
