When Radagast visits Dol Guldur during AUJ he encounters the disembodied spirit of The Necromancer. We actually hear that spirit speak Radagast's name, and it is at THAT moment that The Necromancer takes possession of Rady's body. From then on, whenever we see Radagast on screen, it is actually The Necromancer wearing a rather crappy (pun intended) disguise.
This would explain why Radagast drives his bunny sled around in circles in the Trollshaws: He's TRYING to lead the orcs back to the Dwarves. It would also explain why Gandalf acknowledges in the trailer for DOS that a trap has been set. Clever Gandalf! He knew all the time that Radagast wasn't as silly as he pretended!
