The Oakland Raiders Thursday signed veteran free agent wide receiver Derek Hagan.
Hagan, who was most recently with the Buffalo Bills, played in six games with two starts for the Raiders last season. The eight-year veteran had 11 catches for 114 yards with the Silver and Black last year before signing with the Bills and playing in four games with one start. He was released by Buffalo on Friday.
The 6-foot-2, 210-pound Hagan is a veteran of six NFL seasons, seeing action in 69 games with eight starts with the Miami Dolphins, New York Giants, Raiders and Bills. His career totals include 109 receptions for 1,221 yards and six touchdowns.
The Palmdale, Calif., native entered the league as the Dolphins’ third-round pick (82nd overall) in the 2006 NFL Draft. He finished his collegiate career at Arizona State as the Pac-10 Conference’s all-time leader with 258 receptions.
To make room on the 53-player roster, the Raiders waived cornerback Coye Francies.
