Defensive back Damarious Randall signed a one-year deal with the Las Vegas Raiders as an agreement with free agent Eli Apple deteriorated.

Apple agreed to a one-year, $6 million deal on March 16 but the two sides failed to finalize the contract and he returned to free agency on Thursday.

Randall spent the past two seasons with the Cleveland Browns, who acquired him from the Green Bay Packers in a trade that involved quarterback DeShone Kizer.

A first-round pick in 2015, Randall moved from cornerback to safety with the Browns.

Randall, 27, has played in 65 career games, recording 290 tackles, 14 interceptions, two touchdowns and two fumble recoveries.

Apple, 24, was selected 10th overall in the 2016 draft by the New York Giants. He was traded to New Orleans in October 2018 and played in 25 games with the Saints, tallying 58 tackles, two interceptions and 13 passes defensed.

Overall, he has 233 tackles, three interceptions, six fumble recoveries and three forced fumbles in 55 career appearances (48 starts).

Earlier this week, defensive lineman Michael Brockers re-signed with the Los Angeles Rams after his deal with the Baltimore Ravens never came to fruition. And last Friday, the New York Jets failed to reach a final deal after agreeing to a contract with safety Marqui Christian, who also played with the Rams last season.
