Defensive tackle Jonathan Hankins just recently signed a 1-year contract with the Oakland Raiders. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Hankins has officially signed a contract with the Raiders after heading to Oakland to visit the team earlier on Wednesday. The defensive tackle was a second-round draft pick out of Ohio State during the 2013 NFL Draft. Hankins spent 4 seasons with the New York Giants before leaving the team last offseason and deciding to become a free agent until recently signing with the Raiders.

The main reason the Raiders most likely picked up the defensive linemen is the Raiders first game against the Rams on Monday night (September 10th). The game resulted in the Rams winning 33 to 13, putting Oakland with a 20 point deficit at the end of the game. The coach, Jon Gruden, saw what happened first hand with the Raiders defense after releasing potential hall-of-fame Defensive End/Linebacker Khalil Mack, and wanted some defensive reinforcements.
