The Oakland Raiders have signed safety Donovin Darius to an undisclosed deal.

β€œWe are extremely excited about adding Donovin to the Raiders,” said Raiders Head Coach Lane Kiffin. β€œHe will bring us strong competition and he gives us added flexibility in our secondary. Donovin exemplifies hard work and dedication to the game. Working with Donovin at Jacksonville, I was able to see what a phenomenal competitor he is. He will fit great into our team philosophy.”

A starter over 115 NFL games during his nine-year career - all with the Jacksonville Jaguars - Darius adds depth to an already strong unit.

Known as a powerful tackler, Darius registered 614 tackles during his tenure with the Jaguars, adding 14 interceptions.

Originally selected 25th overall selection in the 1998 NFL Draft, Darius posted career-highs in 2004 with 87 tackles and five interceptions.
