Just four days after getting released in Dallas, Hambrick already signed a one-year deal with the Oakland Raiders for just $535,000.
Hambrick, who received a $25,000 signing bonus, will join a Raiders backfield that consists of veterans Tyrone Wheatley, Amos Zeroue and J.R. Redmond, and second-year pro Justin Fargas.
While Hambrick certainly wants to run the ball, the Raiders are intrigued by his special teams play. He will reunite with current Raiders special teams coach Joe Avezzano, who held the same position with the Cowboys for 13 years (1990-2002).
During Avezzano's last year in Dallas, Hambrick was one of his better special teams players, finished second on the team with 17 special teams tackles.
