ALAMEDA, Calif. -- The Oakland Raiders said Friday that linebacker Thomas Howard has signed his contract tender.
That leaves cornerback Stanford Routt as the only restricted free agent who hasn't signed his tender with the team.
Howard was a second-round draft pick in 2006, and he has started 64 of 66 games in his NFL career. He has seven career interceptions, with two being returned for touchdowns.
Howard will receive $1.759 million if he makes the team.
