The Silver and Black added depth to both their secondary and special teams units Wednesday by signing safety Brynden Trawick.
Get to know more about the newest Raider.
1. Special Teams Standout
Trawick has appeared in 38 games in his career, totaling 10 career tackles, one pass defensed, and 21 tackles on special teams, and he is looking forward to getting to work with special teams coordinator Brad Seely.
"We talked a little bit earlier," said Trawick. "He said he liked what I did in Baltimore. I can fit right in here, with everything I did in Baltimore I'll be doing here."
2. California Love
The former Troy Trojan is a native of Marietta, Ga., and after spending the first three years of his career in Baltimore, he's looking forward to spending some quality time in Northern California.
"The Bay Area is cool," Trawick explained. "I like the weather. The weather is definitely a plus. You can't complain. It's California, so what can you complain about with California? I'm excited."
3. It's Been A Long Road
Originally signed as an undrafted free agent by the Baltimore Ravens in 2013, Trawick spent time on the practice squad before being elevated to the active roster.
Now entering his fourth season in the NFL, Trawick isn't letting a single moment in the league go unappreciated.
"It's definitely an amazing feeling," he said. "I never thought that I would be even in year four in my whole life. I'm grateful for the shot I have here and I'm ready to go to work."
4. He's Excited About Joining The Silver And Black
"I see a lot of young guys that are trying to get there," Trawick said. "I see a team that's young. The young guys are doing a good job in bringing the rest of team along – everybody's a vet. Everybody's a leader. That's what I like."
5. World Traveler
Just days before inking his deal with the Raiders, Trawick was in the midst of a vacation in Europe.
He visited a multitude of countries during his trip, but one experience stands above the rest.
"I went to Norway and I went skiing for the first time and that was a good feeling," Trawick said.
