Kevin Burnett wasn't out of work for long.
Burnett, 30, is coming off a season in which he set a career high with 110 tackles, 2.5 sacks and one forced fumble. A 2005 second-round pick of the Dallas Cowboys, Burnett hasn't missed a game since 2009.
This is a potential value signing by the Raiders, who desperately needed to add depth at linebacker. Pro Football Focus graded out Burnett as the NFL's fourth-best 4-3 outside linebacker in 2012.
