ALAMEDA _ The Raiders claimed former Cal kicker Giorgio Tavecchio on waivers from the Detroit Lions on Tuesday and released Kevin Goessling.

Tavecchio has been in camps with San Francisco and Green Bay. Tavecchio will handle kicking duties Thursday night against the Seattle Seahawks while Sebastian Janikowski recovers from a right quadriceps strain.
