WR Derek Hagan reportedly signs with Raiders

Steve Corkran of the Contra Costa Times is reporting wide receiver Derek Hagan has signed with the Oakland Raiders.  Hagan himself broke the news about his signing on Twitter, though the Raiders haven’t officially announced anything yet.  Hagan was cut by Buffalo, but if the name sounds familiar, it’s because he played for Oakland last year.  Though his regular season numbers were negligible, he was one of Oakland’s leading receivers during the regular season.

I was a fan of Hagan last season and was bummed to see him get cut, so I’m OK with this move.  Hagan certainly isn’t a top-tier receiver, but he runs routes well and has good hands.  Don’t expect too much of him, but hopefully he can produce if called upon to do so.  ESPN’s Bill Williamson thinks the Raiders could also possibly still sign Jabar Gaffney too, so perhaps this move doesn’t totally eliminate that possibility.
