ALAMEDA — The Oakland Raiders opened free agency by agreeing to contracts with former Super Bowl MVP Malcolm Smith and blocking tight end Lee Smith.
A person with knowledge of the deal said the team is finalizing the deal with Malcolm Smith on Tuesday night. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal with the former Seattle linebacker has not been signed.
A second person, also speaking on condition of anonymity, says Lee Smith has agreed to a $9.1 million, three-year contract to leave Buffalo for Oakland.
Those deals were first reported by ESPN.
The Raiders also have reportedly signed former Kansas City center Rodney Hudson to a five-year contract that CBS Sports said is worth $44.5 million.
