Analysis: Lofton is the second big addition at linebacker, following 2014 Super Bowl MVP Malcolm Smith, who agreed to a deal Tuesday. He will likely fill the hole at middle linebacker created when Nick Roach went down with a season-ending concussion in an exhibition game last summer. Miles Burris struggled as the starter in the middle and the Raiders were seeking an upgrade after releasing Roach last week.
