The Oakland Raiders bolstered their defense Wednesday by signing veteran defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins to a one-year contract, a source told Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Hankins played for the Indianapolis Colts last year. He performed steadily in the trenches, but was cut one season into a three-year, $30-million contract after the Colts' new coaching staff made schematic changes to the defense.

Prior to his stop in Indy, Hankins spent four years with the New York Giants. He had a career-high seven sacks in 2014.

The Raiders also agreed to terms Wednesday with fellow defensive tackle Clinton McDonald, according to the 31-year-old's agent. McDonald racked up 29 tackles and five sacks with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last season.

The two additions were part of a busy day for the Raiders, who also confirmed the re-signing of wide receiver Martavis Bryant.
