The Oakland Raiders have decided to take a flier on former Pro Bowl offensive lineman Andre Gurode, signing him following a tryout with the team on Friday afternoon, according to Silver and Black Pride.
Contract terms are unknown, although its likely to be a one-year deal with little to no guaranteed money.
Gurode is an 11-year NFL veteran, playing nine of those campaigns with the Dallas Cowboys as a center. With the Cowboys, Gurode made five-straight Pro Bowl appearances, the last one coming in 2010.
With Oakland, Gurode will likely be a backup to Stefen Wisniewski, a third-year center out of Penn State. Should Wisniewski get injured, Gurode would provide some leadership for a young group which includes Jared Veldheer and Tony Bergstrom, both 26 years old.
