Raiders Sign Former Colt

Former Colts and Patriots cornerback Tyrone Poole has agreed to join the Oakland Raiders in 2006.

Former Colts and Patriots cornerback Tyrone Poole will be wearing the silver and black this season.

The 11-year veteran signed a two-year deal with the Raiders, according to a report in the Associated Press. His veteran presence will help Oakland's very young group of defensive backs that includes Nnamdi Asomugha, Fabian Washington and Stanford Routt.

Poole, who was recently released by the Patriots, has struggled to stay healthy over the past two seasons, playing in just six games for New England.

The Raiders will be his fifth team after stints with the Panthers, Colts, Broncos, and Patriots. He has seventeen career interceptions, including five with the Colts. He spent four seasons in Indianapolis from 1998 through 2001.
