McKenzie reaches to Packers ties again
By Bill Williamson
The Raiders signed linebacker Vic So’oto and cut linebacker Carl Ihenacho.
So’oto played seven games with Green Bay last season as an undrafted free agent from BYU. Oakland general manger Reggie McKenzie was with the Packers last year. Last week, McKenzie signed cornerback Brandian Ross off the Packers’ practice squad.
McKenzie is clearly filling the bottom of his roster with players he has previously thought had a chance to develop. The Packers cut So’oto earlier this month.
So’oto will provide depth and cut vie for special teams play. He is the second cousin of late San Diego legendary linebacker Junior Seau.
The team also released defensive tackle Vaughn Meatoga from the practice squad.
