The Oakland Raiders have signed unrestricted free agent defensive tackle Vance Walker, General Manager Reggie McKenzie announced Monday.

Walker, who played the past four seasons with the Atlanta Falcons, is the sixth free agent signed by the Raiders since Tuesday, all on the defensive side of the ball.

The 6-foot-2, 305-pound Walker, entering his fifth NFL season, has played in 58 career games with 11 starts, totaling five sacks, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery since entering the league as the Falcons’ seventh-round draft choice (210th overall) in 2009.

In 2012, Walker started a career-high nine games and posted career bests with 32 tackles (21 solo) and three sacks.
