The Oakland Raiders have signed veteran outside linebacker Kevin Burnett, General Manager Reggie McKenzie announced Sunday.

Burnett has started 16 games in each of the last three seasons, including the last two years with the Miami Dolphins. His brother, Kaelin, is also a linebacker with the Raiders, having joined Oakland as a non-drafted free agent in 2012 and playing in six games after being signed from the practice squad. 

The 6-foot-3, 230-pound Kevin Burnett, entering his ninth NFL season, has played in 120 career games with 59 starts for the Dolphins, San Diego Chargers and Dallas Cowboys. His career totals include 17 ½ sacks, 20 passes defensed, four interceptions, seven forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and three interception returns for touchdowns since entering the league as the Cowboys’ second-round draft choice (42nd overall) in 2005. 

The native of Inglewood, Calif., topped the 100-tackle mark in each of the last two seasons with Miami. In 2012, he posted a career-high 110 tackles (80 solo) and matched a career best with five passes defensed. He added one forced fumble and 2 ½ sacks, marking his fifth straight year with at least two sacks. 

In 2010, Burnett’s second year in San Diego after four seasons with the Cowboys, he established career highs with six sacks and two interceptions.
