The Raiders added depth to their backfield Thursday, agreeing to a one-year deal with RB Michael Bennett.

Bennett, a 10th-year veteran, could become the third-string back behind Michael Bush and Darren McFadden, who are battling for the starting spot.

This is the fifth different team Bennett has played for. He spent last season with the Chargers and rushed 23 times for 65 yards. He hasn't rushed for more than 200 yards in a season since 2005.
