ALAMEDA, Calif. (May 12, 2005) -- The Oakland Raiders signed former Houston Texans linebacker Jay Foreman to a free-agent contract.
Foreman had 79 tackles last season despite missing five games with a sprained left ankle.
The Raiders were looking to beef up their linebacking corps after trading Napoleon Harris to Minnesota in a deal for Randy Moss in March.
Foreman came to Houston in a trade with Buffalo in 2002 and started for three seasons. He made a career-high 141 tackles in 2002 and had 135 the next season.
