The Oakland Raiders have re-signed defensive end C.J. Wilson who spent last season with the team. Wilson had tested the free agent market the past two weeks, but both sides had expressed interest in him returning to the team.
Shortly after re-signing, Wilson took to Twitter to announce it.

Wilson appeared in all 16 games last season, starting 7 at the defensive end spot. He finished fifth on the team with 2.0 sacks to go along with 23 tackles (16 solo). He is strong against the run and showed up well in pass rush as well.
