Raiders Claim Coye Francies, According To Report

The Oakland Raiders added some cornerback depth Tuesday by claiming Coye Francies off waivers from the Seattle Seahawks, according to a report from Adam Caplan.

Francies spent training camp with the Seahawks after not playing in the NFL during the 2011 season. Seattle waived Francies on Monday during their initial round of cuts. Francies was drafted by the Cleveland Browns in the sixth round of the 2009 NFL Draft and spent two seasons in Cleveland.

He will now join the Raiders backfield and compete for a spot on the final 53-man roster. He's played in eight games during his NFL career, posting seven tackles and one pass deflection. He battled a groin injury during his second season that caused him to begin the season on the physically unable to perform list.
