Former Raiders QB Bruce Gradkowski has agreed to sign with the Bengals, his agent Rick Smith announced on Twitter.
Gradkowski, a sixth-year veteran, started four games for the Raiders last season, tossing five touchdowns and seven interceptions. He has started 20 career games wit the Bucs, Browns and Raiders.
Gradkowski finished last season on injured reserve with a shoulder injury.
Bengals owner Mike Brown said Tuesday the team does not plan to trade Carson Palmer. Gradkowski could compete to start Day One with second-round pick Andy Dalton.
