Updated: Joselio Hanson Signs With Raiders

Former Eagles nickel corner Joselio Hanson has found a new home.

According to Adam Caplan, Hanson signed a one-year deal with the Raiders after visiting them on Sunday.

Hanson, entering his eighth NFL season, appeared in all 16 games last season for the Eagles, finishing with four passes defensed.   He had been running with the first team as the nickel cornerback all preseason. Ultimately the Eagles showed their faith in rookie Brandon Boykin to fill that role and released Hanson on cutdown day.

The 31-year-old had been in Philadelphia since 2006 after one season in San Francisco. He has 209 career tackles with 49 passes defensed, four interceptions and 3 1/2 sacks.
