ALAMEDA, Calif. – The Oakland Raiders have signed free agent LB Lorenzo Alexander, the club announced Wednesday.

Alexander is entering his ninth NFL season, following stints with the Washington Redskins (2006-12) and Arizona Cardinals (2013-14), and practice squad stops with the Carolina Panthers (2005) and Baltimore Ravens (2006). For his career, Alexander has totaled 111 games played with 16 starts, 154 tackles (95 solo), nine sacks, three forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries and six passes defensed. A standout special teams performer, he has also recorded 94 special teams stops over his career.

The 6-foot-1, 245-pounder was voted as the NFC’s special teams representative for the Pro Bowl after he posted 31 special teams tackles in 2012. On defense that season, Alexander added a career-high 2.5 sacks and 26 tackles (17 solo).

Off the field, Alexander was named the Redskins’ Walter Payton Man of the Year Award nominee twice (2010-11) during his tenure with the team. He was also named as the recipient of Washington’s Media Good Guy Award in both 2011 and 2012.

A native of Berkeley, Calif., Alexander attended California, where he was a two-time honorable mention All-Pac 10 selection as a defensive lineman.
