The Raiders are set to sign linebacker Will Compton, according to Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area (on Twitter). They’ll also add offensive lineman/center Erik Magnuson from the Bills’ practice squad to round out their roster.
Unfortunately for Compton and Magnuson, their Oakland arrivals are overshadowed by the addition of linebacker Brandon Marshall, who rejoined the squad earlier on Tuesday. Still, both players will provide the Raiders with veteran experience on either side of the ball.
The Raiders didn’t get the big fish they wanted on Tuesday but, then again, that was the story for just about every team in the NFL. Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson remained in New York and the Raiders, at 3-4, will have to work with what they have, more or less.
Compton & Co. – as they’re now known – will face the Lions on Sunday.
