The Raiders are adding a veteran cornerback to the roster.

Agent Doug Hendrickson announced that his client Desmond Trufant has signed with Las Vegas.

Trufant signed with the Saints in September after being cut by the Bears out of training camp. He had three tackles and a pass defensed in two games before being released earlier this month. Trufant played for the Lions in 2020 and spent the first seven years of his career with the Falcons.

The Raiders had Casey Hayward, Nate Hobbs, Brandon Facyson, Roderick Teamer, Keisean Nixon, and Amik Robertson at corner for their Week Six win over the Broncos. They also have Damon Arnette and Trayvon Mullen on injured reserve.

  1. The Raiders front line is starting to apply a lot of pressure. A lot of balls being thrown up for grabs. Who wouldn’t want to sign with Las Vegas?

  2. He was solid for a few years but I think when you’re cut by three teams in less than a year you probably don’t have much left.

  3. I thought Desmond was now in a HOME. He’s got to be nearly 40 – that is 90 in football years – or puberty in Tomasina Brady years.
