    Amid speculation the Raiders were looking hard at bringing in another linebacker, they instead signed veteran cornerback Ricky Manning Jr. Manning immediately got in some work as a nickel cornerback and was told to acquaint himself with strong safety. Manning failed to get a hand on a ball that went over his head from Bruce Gradkowski to Todd Watson, and was a late arrival on a JaMarcus Russell pass to Johnnie Lee Higgins.
