The Raiders made a change at wide receiver today, adding former fourth round pick Devon Wylie to the squad and releasing undrafted rookie Austin Willis.

Wylie was originally drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs in 2012 out of Frenso State. He appeared in just six games with the Chiefs during his rookie campaign, recording six receptions for 53 yards.

In 2013, the 5-9, 185-pounder played on five different teams -- appearing in two games with the Tennessee Titans, two games with the 49ers, and two games with the Seahawks, primarily as a kick and punt returner. Last season, he spent time on the practice squads of the San Francisco 49ers and St. Louis Rams. For his career, Wylie has played in eight games and totaled six catches for 63 yards, 14 kickoff returns for 285 yards (20.4 avg.) and seven punt returns for 30 yards (4.3 avg.).

Wylie played his senior season with Derek Carr at Fresno State, catching 56 passes for 716 yards and a touchdown. In his career as FSU he returned 41 punts for 553 yards and two touchdowns. He is a native of Roseville, Calif., and attended Granite Bay High School.
