NFL Free Agency: Raiders Sign Tackle Alex Barron


The Oakland Raiders have signed free agent tackle Alex Barron, the team announced.

A former first round pick of the Rams, he started 74 games for St. Louis over five seasons.

Barron was traded to Dallas in 2010, and signed with the Saints the following year. However, injuries forced him to miss all of 2011, and Barron did not play at all last season after being released by the Seahawks in training camp.
