Tevin McDonald has found his next team.
The former Edison High football star inked an undrafted free-agent deal with the Oakland Raiders.
McDonald’s agent, Bradley Cicala, said it’s a good fit for McDonald: “The priorities they’ve shown, the fact that they have some veterans there that he can learn from and grow from -- the organization is definitely moving in the right direction from last year. We feel it’s a good fit.”
McDonald couldn’t be reached for comment.

The Raiders’ current safeties are former Pro Bowler Charles Woodson, Nate Allen, Larry Asante, Jonathan Dowling and Brandian Ross,
