ALAMEDA -- Safety Brandian Ross signed his exclusive rights tender Monday, the fifth player so designated to return to the Raiders with the offseason program set to get underway.

Ross joins tackle Matt McCants, linebacker Kaelin Burnett, running back James Stewart and fullback Jamize Olawale as players who were offered contracts and lacked the time in the league to have negotiating power.

The Raiders begin their offseason program Tuesday, their first gathering as a team since a major overhaul that included the signings of a handful of veteran free agents.

There were no announcements regarding quarterback Terrelle Pryor, who according to a Fox Sports report was going to be either cut or traded Monday.
