The Oakland Raiders have signed Taylor Mays.

Mays was released recently by the Detroit Lions.

Mays is entering his sixth NFL season, following stops with the San Francisco 49ers and Cincinnati Bengals.


Mays played collegiately at USC from 2006-09 while Raiders defensive coordinator Ken Norton, Jr. coached on the defensive side of the ball and eventually served as the assistant head coach defense/linebackers in 2009, Mays’ final collegiate season.
