The Oakland Raiders have signed Korey Bosworth, the organization announced Thursday.

Bosworth, a 6-foot-1, 230-pound linebacker out of UCLA, adds depth to that position on the Raiders’ roster. He will wear No. 97, and is expected to make the trip with the team to Arizona for Friday’s preseason game.

Officially a second-year player, Bosworth initially signed as a non-drafted free agent with the Denver Broncos in 2010. He spent parts of training camp with the Detroit Lions in 2010, 2011 and 2012, and played in the Lions’ preseason opener last week vs. Cleveland.

Bosworth played all 51 games during his four years at UCLA, starting 25 in a row over his final two seasons. His twin brother, Kyle, plays for the Jacksonville Jaguars. Their uncle is former Seattle Seahawks and University of Oklahoma linebacker Brian Bosworth.
