The Raiders added an extra safety on Monday, announcing the signing of rookie Jeremy Deering, an undrafted free agent from Rutgers.

Deering (6-1, 209) played 48 games (18 starts) for the Scarlet Knights, playing multiple positions. In 2013, he transitioned to free safety from wide receiver and started 10 games on defense. The 23-year-old Deering also has experience returning kickoffs.

Deering had a brief stint with the Patriots in May before being waived.

Deering is one of six available safeties on the Raiders’ roster. A seventh player at the position, Usama Young, is on the active/physically unable to perform list. Young has a quad injury.

    Fire the coach because they signed another camp body who, if he doesn’t make the team, nothing lost. If he does, he’s one of the camp surprises.

    lmao@Fire the coach!!!!!!
