The Raiders made their first two free-agent signings Friday, adding former Rams CB Ron Bartell and ex-Texans OG Mike Brisiel.

Bartell signed a one-year contract worth a maximum of $3 million with incentives, and Brisiel inked a five-year deal worth nearly $20 million, according to

Prior to the two signings, Oakland had been dumping salaries to create space under the cap, releasing such players as OLB Kamerion Wimbley, DT John Henderson, OG Cooper Carlisle, QB Jason Campbell and TE Kevin Boss, as well as CB Stanford Routt a month ago.

Bartell, who was cut by St. Louis on Tuesday, has started 66 NFL games but sat out all but one game last season with a neck injury. The seven-year veteran was considered the Rams' best cornerback last season before getting hurt.

Brisiel started 47 games in six seasons for the Texans, including 13 last year, but he played in all 16 games only once, in 2008. Brisiel was ranked 64th on PFW's list of the top 100 free agents this season.
