ALAMEDA, Calif. -- The Oakland Raiders have signed free agent guard Jonathan Cooper.
The team made the move Monday to add a veteran guard after news last week that projected starter Richie Incognito will be suspended for the first two games of the season for violating the league's personal conduct policy.
Cooper was a first-round pick by Arizonain 2013 and has played 46 games over five years with the Cardinals, Cleveland, Dallasand Washington. He played four games for Washington last season after spending the offseason with San Francisco.
The Raiders waived receiver Montay Crockett to make room on the roster for Cooper.
