Raiders sign backup QB Josh Johnson

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) The Oakland Raiders have signed free agent quarterback Josh Johnson to compete for the backup position.

The team on Monday also officially announced the signing of cornerback Shareece Wright, who said last week he agreed to join the Raiders, and the details of a trade agreed to over the weekend that sent kick returner Cordarrelle Patterson to New England.

The Raiders will get the 159th overall pick in next month's draft from the Patriots in exchange for Patterson and the 210th overall pick.
