Raiders To Sign C.J. Wilson

The Raiders have signed defensive lineman C.J. Wilson, according to Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle (on Twitter). Wilson was among the final cuts in Oakland before the season started.

Wilson, 28, accrued 23 tackles and two sacks in 16 games (seven starts) with the Raiders in 2014. 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. Now, with Justin Ellis sidelined, the Raiders are hoping they can get some quality production out of Wilson in 2015.

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 the Packers, he appeared in 50 games and made 11 starts.
