Oakland Raiders Sign Former Georgia Defensive Back


The Oakland Raiders announced on Thursday the signing of former Georgia safety Quincy Mauger.

Mauger was signed by the Atlanta Falcons as an undrafted free agent, however, after suffering a season ending knee injury in the preseason, Atlanta released him this June.

The Marietta native and Kell High School alum had a solid career at Georgia, making a name for himself as one of college football’s hardest hitting safeties during his collegiate tenure.

After a college career in which Mauger recorded 186 tackles and seven interceptions, he now joins a Raiders team with a depleted secondary. Mauger may be forced to prove himself not only at defensive back but on special teams as well if he wants to earn a permanent spot on Jon Gruden’s roster.

Best of luck to Mauger.
