The Oakland Raiders signed Omar Gaither on Wednesday to add depth to their linebacker corps.
In six seasons with Philadelphia and Carolina, Gaither played in 77 games and made 40 starts. He started four games for the Panthers last year and was in training camp this year with Houston.
A fifth-round draft pick in 2006, Gaither has 393 career tackles and two interceptions.
The Raiders made room for Gaither on the roster by placing linebacker Travis Goethel (knee) on injured reserve.
