The Oakland Raiders have signed rookie safety Jeremy Deering.
He's an undrafted free agent from Rutgers.
The 6-foot-1, 209-pounder played wide receiver and free safety at Rutgers and also returned kickoffs.
Deering was previously with the New England Patriots.
Veteran safety Usama Young is on the Raiders' physically unable to perform list with a quadriceps injury.
