NFL Network's Adam Schefter reports Jordan signed a one-year deal.
LaMont Jordan, RB
Oakland had little use for Jordan since midway through last season, when he carried the ball only 19 times in the final nine games. He fell further down the depth chart after the Raiders used the fourth overall pick in the 2008 NFL Draft on Darren McFadden. The Raiders had been looking to trade Jordan for months.
With no trade to be found, Oakland granted Jordan his release instead of allowing him to report to training camp. He was scheduled to make $4.7 million this year and $5 million next season.
Jordan rushed for 1,025 yards, caught 70 passes and scored 11 touchdowns his first season in Oakland, but has had much less impact since with only 983 yards rushing the last two seasons.
He got off to a fast start last year, rushing for 424 yards in his first four games for the second highest total in the league. But he injured his back in the first half of the fourth game and did little the remainder of the season.
