The Raiders signed free agent kicker Swayze Waters to a one-year contract Tuesday. He spent part of last season with the Detroit Lions as an undrafted free agent out of Alabama-Birmingham.

Sebastian Janikowski has been the Raiders' kicker the past 10 seasons, so Waters isn't expected to make the 53-man roster.

The Raiders typically sign an inexperienced kicker to lighten the load on Janikowski through training camp.
