The Oakland Raiders have re-signed defensive back Coye Francies to a one-year, $630,000 deal. Francies became a free agent Tuesday when Oakland declined to tender him a contract. But the Raiders ended up re-signing Francies anyway.||||||| Francies played mostly on special teams in his first season with the Raiders when he got only 11 snaps on defense. But with safety Tyvon Branch the only returning starter in the secondary under contract, Francies could get a shot to compete there this season.

The Oakland Raiders have claimed Francies on waivers from the Seattle Seahawks.||||||| The Raiders announced the move Wednesday, two days after Francies was waived by Seattle. Francies played in eight games with the Cleveland Browns from 2009-10 and also has experience as a kick returner. Oakland needs help in that area with Denarius Moore and Jacoby Ford both nursing injuries.

Francies, incensed over a prank, threw a bucket of ice and at least one errant punch during a skirmish in the Browns' locker room.||||||| As the team returned from practice Friday, a soaking-wet Francies, apparently the target of some hazing, stormed into the locker room carrying a water bucket full of ice. Before he could be stopped, Francies tossed the ice on cornerback Brandon McDonald. Francies flung some ice in the direction of safety Mike Adams before heading toward safety Abram Elam's corner cubicle. Francies then swung at Elam before Pro Bowl nose tackle Shaun Rogers escorted him out.
