Analysis: Spencer's agent, Peter Schaffer, says Spencer thought the Raiders were the best fit for him and he is excited to make the move across the bay after playing his first eight NFL seasons with the San Francisco 49ers. Spencer started 72 games his first seven years, including all 32 in 2009-10. But he lost his job in training camp last year and spent most of his final season with the 49ers as a reserve.

The 49ers released the cornerback Thursday after he spent eight seasons with the team. The 30-year-old Spencer started every game in 2009 and 2010 but appeared in only nine games with no starts for coach Jim Harbaugh and the NFC West champions last season.
Analysis: On Tuesday, the 49ers signed cornerback Perrish Cox. They also have agreed on a new $31.3 million, four-year contract with Pro Bowl cornerback Carlos Rogers. San Francisco selected Spencer in the second round of the 2004 draft, out of Pittsburgh. He has 345 career tackles, 11 interceptions, three forced fumbles and a touchdown in eight NFL seasons.
