PHOENIX, AZ - Anthony Cioffi, the four-year defensive back out of Rutgers and Jonathan Dayton High School alum, will participate in his first game action of the year as the Oakland Raiders visit the Arizona Cardinals in the first preseason game for both teams at 10 p.m. ET.

For live cut-ins of the game, tune into the NFL Network on your local cable system and follow www.raiders.com for the latest news and information.

Cioffi, who is listed fourth under strong safety on the Raiders unofficial depth chart (as of Monday, August 7), tallied 168 tackles, two and a half sacks, three forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries, and eight interceptions in a stellar “do-it-all” 47-game (33 starts) career at Rutgers, where he played cornerback, free safety, and strong safety.
