Raiders Sign Usama Young, Despite What Wikipedia Said

New, comments

Earlier on Tuesday, Usama Young's Wikipedia page said he had been signed by the Bengals. That's not true, though, as he is now an Oakland Raider.

The Oakland Raiders signed safety Usama Young on Tuesday, according to Aaron Wilson. Young had visited the Bengals as an unrestricted free agent.

Many Bengals fans happened to notice on Tuesday morning that Young's Wikipedia page listed him as a Cincinnati Bengals player for the 2013 season and beyond. Obviously Wikipedia is a source that cannot be trusted (I can say anything about myself on that site), but it's right from time to time. Today was not one of those times.

The Bengals are looking for a new strong safety and as the draft grows closer, it's more and more likely that they'll find their new safety in the first few rounds. However, there is a long time before the season begins and it's possible that the Bengals could find their safety in free agency still.
