On the fourth day of free agency, the Raiders have begun filling out depth and special teams. They have added linebacker Kyle Wilber.

Wilber was a 4th round pick by the Cowboys in 2012 out of Wake Forest. The 28-year-old has played his entire 6-year NFL career in Dallas, appearing in 89 games with 16 starts at the outside linebacker spot.

In that time, he recorded 3.5 sacks and 104 combined tackles (69 solo) along with 3 forced fumbles and 5 fumble recoveries. He’s also missed just one game the past five seasons.

The 6-4, 245-pounder is mostly a special teams ace, finishing in the team’s top five in special teams tackles each of the past three seasons, tying for the team lead in 2015 with 8 combined special teams tackles, second in 2016, and last season forcing a fumble.

His special teams coach in Dallas? Current Raiders Special Teams coach Rich Bisaccia.
