The Oakland Raiders reportedly have signed free-agent cornerback Joselio Hanson to a one-year contract.

Hansen, 31, was released by the Philadelphia Eagles in their roster cutdown to 53 players after six seasons with the team.

Financial terms of the deal weren't disclosed, but TheSidelineView.com reported that Hanson's base salary was $825,000 with the Eagles with the potential of earning another $300,000 in incentives.

Hansen had 239 tackles, 2.5 sacks and four interceptions with the Eagles while playing mostly in nickel packages.

Hansen apparently will take cornerback DeMarcus Van Dyke's spot on the Raiders' roster. ProFootballTalk.com reported that Van Dyke was to be waived.
