·1 min read

With a couple of roster spots available after the draft and undrafted free agent signings, the Raiders continue to add players today. They have signed former Rams and Broncos linebacker Kenny Young.

The 6-1, 235-pounder was originally a fourth round pick by the Ravens in the 2018 draft out of UCLA.

After spending the better part of two seasons with the Rams, he was traded to the Broncos midway through last season.

Young started 13 games split between the Broncos and Rams in 2021 putting up 75 combined tackles, six tackles for loss and two sacks, making for his best season in the pros.

The 27-year-old inside linebacker joins a group led by Denzel Perryman coming off his first Pro Bowl in 2021. The Raiders also added Jayon Brown, Micah Kiser, and Kyler Fackrell this offseason.
