Raiders sign Ross off Packersâ€™ practice squad
SEP 19, 2012 1:57p ET
Last offseason, Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie left Green Bay, where he was the Packers' director of football operations and likely got familiar with Ross when the cornerback spent his first season on the practice squad.
Ross, 22, made Green Bay's 53-man roster out of training camp this season but was sent back to the practice squad when linebacker Erik Walden finished serving his one-game suspension.
The Raiders have been ravaged by injuries in the secondary.
