ALAMEDA -- The Raiders signed punter Daniel Zychlinski on Friday in a move designed to give incumbent Marquette King a break during offseason workouts and the Raiders insurance in case King gets injured.

King replaced Shane Lechler last season and showed that he has the ability to be a fixture for years to come.

Zychlinski, who played at Stanford from 2008-12, gets an opportunity to learn from King and perhaps get his work on videotape for other teams to see in case they need a punter at some point before or during the season.

Zychinski averaged 42.2 yards during his collegiate career. His 43.1 average his final season was the fifth-best total in Stanford history.
