After five months of free agency, Omar Gaither is back in Oakland.
The Raiders announced today that Gaither, who played the second half of the 2012 season in Oakland, has signed with the team again.
The 29-year-old Gaither was released by the Texans at the end of the preseason last year and was out of work for the start of the regular season, but once he signed on with the Raiders he quickly began to contribute, and he ended up starting four of the last five games of the season. Now he’s back in the fold.
Gaither was drafted by the Eagles in 2006 and spent five seasons in Philadelphia. He also spent one season in Carolina.
