The Oakland Raiders continue to add players to a defense that desperately needed bodies at the start of free agency.
It's a move that adds depth to a secondary now missing Charles Woodson at a position that also includes Tyvon Branch and Brandian Ross. Young, 28, appeared in 12 games last season as a rotational defensive back, piling up 26 total tackles, 2.5 sacks and one interception before finishing the year on injured reserve with a neck issue.
The re-signing comes on the heels of adding scheme-versatile defensive end Antonio Smith, formerly of the Houston Texans, and ex-San Francisco 49ers cornerback Tarell Brown. With pass rushers LaMarr Woodley and Justin Tuck also in the fold, the Raiders loom as a team that will attack offenses with a mix of three- and four-man fronts.
Still flush with a bundle of salary cap cash, re-singing Young won't be the final move out of Oakland.
