The Oakland Raiders signed free-agent linebacker Tahir Whitehead on Thursday. The soon-to-be 28-year-old had a great year in Detroit in 2017, posting 110 tackles, one sack, four fumble recoveries and an interception, and that came after a career-high 132 tackles in 2016. He's a fine acquisition for new head coach Jon Gruden's defense, and Whitehead should be a three-down linebacker in the middle of the defense. Keep his name in mind for IDP leagues.
