Raiders Sign C.J. Wilson

Free agent defensive lineman C.J. Wilson has signed with the Raiders, the player tweeted. Wilson’s deal is for two years and $4.6MM, according to Patrick Quinn of WNCT (Twitter link).

Wilson, who will turn 28 later this month, accrued 23 tackles and two sacks in 16 games (seven starts) with the Raiders last season. Pro Football Focus (subscription required) ranked Wilson 27th out of 57 qualifying 4-3 defensive ends for his work, and he recently drew interest from the Seahawks.

The five-year veteran entered the league as a seventh-round pick of the Packers in 2010 and spent his first four seasons in Green Bay, with which he appeared in 50 games and made 11 starts.
