Raiders Rumors: Oakland Expected To Sign Panthers CB James Dockery

While the Oakland Raiders haven't yet made a splash during the early stages of the 2015 NFL free agency period, they've been extremely active in hopes of retooling their roster for next season and beyond.

Here's Marcus Allen Krause of SB Nation with the report:

Bill Williamson of ESPNis reporting that "barring unexpected changes" the Raiders will be signing CB James Dockery from the Carolina Panthers. Dockery is a 4 year veteran, all four with the Panthers, who has started 2 games out of a possible 31 that he has played in, he has accumulated 39 tackles and 1 pass defensed in that time so productive he has not been.

With that being said, he is a tall corner at 6'1 though he only weighs about 185lbs. He is 26 years old and attended college at Oregon State. Though he went north for his college though he is actually a California native having been born in West Covine and graduated from Plain Desert High School.

Dockery will likely be a depth signing for the Raiders, giving Oakland a contingency plan in the secondary while hopefully providing production and solid coverage when called upon.
