The Oakland Raiders have announced the signing of free agent cornerback Brandon Underwood.
A 2009 sixth-round pick out of the University of Cincinnati, Underwood totaled 21 tackles in 23 games over his two seasons with the Packers, 16 of which came on special teams. Underwood was released prior to the start of the 2011 regular season and did not hook on with another club.
Underwood's tenure with the Packers was marred by a pair of off-field arrests, one for having non-marital sexual intercourse in an act of prostitution during an incident at a charity golf event in June of 2010. Underwood was fined $379 for that incident and the record will be expunged within a year.
Last year, Underwood was charged with domestic disorderly conduct after allegedly ripping a necklace of his estranged wife's neck after the Packers' Super Bowl ring ceremony. Underwood was fined a little over $700 for that incident.
Current Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie worked in the Packers' front office up until his hiring in January.
