NFL Free Agency: Former Raiders DE Matt Shaughnessy Signs With Cardinals


Former Raiders free agent defensive end Matt Shaughnessy has signed with the Arizona Cardinals. 

Shaughnessy visited with the Cardinals on Thursday. He played in all 16 games last season for the Raiders, recording 25 tackles and 3.5 sacks. He was selected by Oakland in the third round in 2009.

The Raiders have already lost Philip Wheeler and Desmond Bryant to free agency, and now the departure of Shaughnessy puts an even deeper whole in thir defense.
