The Oakland Raiders have signed free agent linebacker Vic So’oto, the team announced Tuesday.

The 6-foot-2, 255-pound So’oto, whose name is pronounced so-OH-toe, played in seven games with the Green Bay Packers last season after signing as a non-drafted free agent out of BYU. He was placed on injured reserve by the Packers on Aug. 31 with an ankle injury and was waived-injured (injury settlement) on Sept. 10.

So’oto, who is a second cousin of the late All-Pro linebacker Junior Seau, recorded seven tackles (five solo) and one sack with the Packers in 2011, playing on special teams and defense. He added three special-teams tackles on the season.

To make room on the team’s active roster, the Raiders Tuesday waived linebacker Carl Ihenacho. The team also released defensive tackle Vaughn Meatoga from the practice squad.
