Wilson was released by the Raiders on Saturday. Wilson appeared in every game with the Raiders last season, picking up 23 tackles (16 solo) and two sacks, but he quickly tumbled down the depth chart in 2015, playing in just three games this season. He could be a candidate to join another team should they need help along their defensive line.
Defensive end C.J. Wilson agreed to a contract with the Raiders on Tuesday. Wilson appeared in all 16 games with the Raiders last season, so he was a natural consideration with the team looking to add a defensive lineman. Wilson started seven games for Oakland last year, but figures to fill a reserve role this season.
The Raiders announced that they have re-signed defensive lineman C.J. Wilson . Wilson appeared in a career-high 16 games last season for the team, starting seven contests. Over his career, he has tallied 137 total tackles, 5.5 sacks, one pass defensed and one fumble recovery.
The Raiders signed defensive lineman C.J. Wilson on Wednesday, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. Wilson spent last year with the Raiders, playing all four defensive line positions for the team. The 27-year-old started seven of the 16 games he played in, recording 23 total tackles and two sacks.
The Raiders have listed the following players as inactive for Sunday's Week 16 matchup with the Bills: wide receivers Vincent Brown (groin) and Denarius Moore (knee, ankle), tight end Brian Leonhardt (concussion), cornerback Chimdi Chekwa (hamstring), guard Tony Bergstrom, tackle Menelik Watson and defensive tackle Stacy McGee. Brown, Moore, Leonhard and Chewka were previously ruled out on the team's final injury report for Week 16. Bergstrom, Watson and McGee are healthy scratches. The team will have cornerback D.J. Hayden (back) and defensive tackle C.J. Wilson (knee) available after both players were listed as questionable to play. Also active are quarterback Derek Carr (thumb) and cornerback T.J. Carrie (ankle), both of whom were deemed probable. The Raiders are a 6 1/2-point underdog at home against the Bills.
