The Raiders signed former Fresno State kicker Kevin Goessling Thursday to back up Sebastian Janikowski and waived Michael Palardy with a non-football/illness designation.

An All-Western Athletic Conference place kicker at Fresno State, Goessling had only one punt in his college career. Palardy was taking some of the camp load off Janikowski as well as punter Marquette King in training camp.
