ALAMEDA — The Oakland Raiders have signed tackle Tony Pashos and released tackle Alex Barron.

The team also signed seven players to the practice squad Monday, including five waived by the team on Saturday.

Receiver Greg Jenkins, defensive backs Chance Casey and Shelton Johnson, guard Lamar Mady and tight end Brian Leonhardt were brought back to the practice squad. Oakland also signed tackle Matt McCants and linebacker Marshall McFadden to the practice squad. The Raiders still have one open spot left.

Pashos has played 92 games with 70 starts with Baltimore, Jacksonville, San Francisco and Cleveland. He was cut by Washington on Saturday.

Barron started two games in the preseason at left tackle but was passed up by rookie Menelik Watson and deemed expendable.
