ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP)

The Oakland Raiders say linebacker Thomas Howard has signed his restricted free agent tender.

The announcement Friday leaves cornerback Stanford Routt as the only restricted free agent who has not signed his contract tender with the team.

Howard was a second-round pick in 2006. He has started 64 of 66 games in his career. He has seven career interceptions with two being returned for touchdowns.

Howard's starting position this year is in jeopardy. Coach Tom Cable said Thursday that Kamerion Wimbley and Trevor Scott would start at outside linebacker.

Howard will receive $1.759 million if he makes the team.
