ALAMEDA, Calif. -- The Oakland Raiders have signed former United Football League punter Danny Baugher to their practice squad as insurance if Shane Lechler is unable to play this week.
Baugher's agent, David Canter, confirmed the signing Tuesday.
Baugher, who has never played in an NFL game, spent this season with Las Vegas of the UFL. He led the league with a 44.6-yard gross average and 36.7 net.
