Raiders sign Donovin Darius

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

"We are extremely excited about adding Donovin to the Raiders," said Raiders Head Coach Lane Kiffin. "He 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.
