Raiders Sign LB Korey Bosworth, According To Report

The Oakland Raiders continue to make progress as the end of training camp draws nearer, adding some defensive depth by signing linebacker Korey Bosworth on Thursday, according to a report.

The 6'1, 230-pounder signed as a non-drafted free agent with the Denver Broncos back in 2010. He spent parts of training camp with the Detroit Lions the last three seasons, and even saw playing time in the Lions' preseason opener last week against the Cleveland Browns.

A UCLA alumnus, Bosworth played all 51 games during his four years as a Bruin, starting 25 games in a row during his junior and senior seasons. His twin brother, Kyle, plays for the Jacksonville Jaguars, but there's also this:

Bosworth adds depth to the LB position and will wear No. 97. He is expected to travel with the team to Arizona for Friday's preseason game against the Cardinals.
