LB Spencer Hadley played his college football at BYU.
ALAMEDA, Calif. – The Oakland Raiders have signed LB Spencer Hadley from their practice squad, and placed CB Tarell Brown on the reserve/injured list, General Manager Reggie McKenzie announced Saturday.
Hadley was originally signed by the New Orleans Saints in May 2014 before being waived in June. Oakland signed him in August, before waiving him at the end of training camp and re-signing him to the team's practice squad two days later. The 6-foot-1, 227-pounder played in 43 games over four seasons at BYU, totaling 149 tackles (77 solo), 4.5 sacks, two interceptions, two forced fumbles and five fumble recoveries. His senior season was cut short after six games due to a season-ending knee injury.
Brown, who was signed by the team as an unrestricted free agent in March, started 14 games for the Silver and Black this season, totaling 66 tackles (48 solo) and 16 passes defensed.
