Raiders reportedly re-signed four more players last week

The Oakland Raiders quietly re-signed four players last week before the deadline to do so, the Bay Area News Group reported Tuesday.

Quarterback Kyle Boller, safety Hiram Eugene, guard Daniel Loper and running back Michael Bennett each signed deals to remain with the Raiders, who also gave a second-round restricted free-agent tender to backup linebacker Ricky Brown.

Boller, who saw limited duty in five games, received a one-year, $1.25 million contract. Fellow quarterbacks Bruce Gradkowski and Charlie Frye are unsigned.

Eugene, who appeared in 14 games, signed a four-year, $10.25 million contract that might signal the end of starting safety Michael Huff's Raiders tenure, the Bay Area News Group reported.

Loper, who replaced Robert Gallery at left guard when he was injured for four games, received a two-year, $3.9 million deal. The Raiders have said Gallery will not be re-signed.

Bennett received a one-year, $865,000 deal.

The Raiders have been among the NFL's most aggressive teams this offseason, re-signing Pro Bowl defensive lineman Richard Seymour and cornerback Stanford Routt to contracts exceeding $30 million, placing the franchise tag on linebacker Kamerion Wimbley, and also keeping defensive lineman John Henderson and special teams standout Rock Cartwright.

The Raiderspreviously tendered contracts to tight end Zach Miller and running back Michael Bush and voided Pro Bowl cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha's contract.
