Ackerman Joins Raiders

Ex-Saints lineman Tom Ackerman has signed a one-year deal with the Oakland Raiders.

Ackerman, 30, was a backup guard and center for most of his six-year career with the Saints. He did start 18 for the Saints in 1998 and 1999, but served as a backup the past two seasons.

He was the second of three fifth round picks in 1996 for New Orleans out of Eastern Washington.
