ALAMEDA, Calif. — The Oakland Raiders have signed offensive lineman Denzelle Good to a one-year extension.
He was eligible to become an unrestricted free agent this month before signing Saturday.
Good was claimed off waivers by Oakland from Indianapolis late last year. He played four games for the Raiders, starting the final three at right guard in place of the injured Gabe Jackson.
Good was a seventh-round pick by the Colts in 2015. He has experience at tackle and guard, with 20 starts in his career.
ASHBURN, Va. — The Washington Redskins have hired longtime NFL defensive guru Rob Ryan as inside linebackers coach.
The team announced the move Wednesday, a day after promoting Kevin O’Connell to offensive co-ordinator on coach Jay Gruden’s staff. Ryan most recently served as the Buffalo Bills’ assistant head coach for defence in 2016.
Before Buffalo, Ryan served as defensive co-ordinator for the New Orleans Saints from 2013-2015, Dallas Cowboys in 2011 and 2012, Cleveland Browns in 2009 and 2010 and Oakland Raiders from 2004-2008. His 2013 Saints’ defence ranked second in passing defence and fourth in points allowed.
The 56-year-old takes over a role on a defence that ranked 17th in the league last season. Defensive co-ordinator Greg Manusky will return for a third season after the Redskins spoke with several potential candidates for the job but never hired a replacement.
