Raiders add former Packers defensive lineman CJ Wilson

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

The Oakland Raiders have officially announced they have signed defensive lineman, C.J. Wilson, formerly of the Green Bay Packers where he has spent his entire 4-year NFL career.

"It feels great to be a Raider," Wilson said. "I'm excited to help the team win and ready to come make some noise."

The 6-3, 306-pound defensive end joined the Packers as a 7th round pick in 2010 while Reggie McKenzie was in the Packers front office. In his four years in the NFL, he has appeared in 50 games with 11 starts collecting 103 tackles (55 solo), and 3.5 sacks.

His best season in 2012, when he played in 11 games and made seven starts, posting 37 tackles (18 solo), 2.5 sacks and one pass defensed. Wilson played a key role on Green Bay's defensive line during their Super Bowl run in 2010, playing in all four games - including starting Super Bowl XLV - and totaling six tackles (five solo) and one sack.

He is expected to add depth at defensive tackle in the Raiders 4-3 base defense. He becomes the second player added at that position along with former Texans defensive lineman, Antonio Smith. Defensive tackle, Pat Sims was also re-signed to the team today.
