The Las Vegas Raiders are reportedly signing yet another defensive lineman in the form of former Tennessee Titans Matt Dickerson.

Let’s get to know Dickerson:

Age: 25

Hometown: San Mateo, California, and he went to Junipero Serra High school — where Tom Brady and Barry Bonds attended decades before.

College: UCLA

Experience: Dickerson was signed as an undrafted free agent in 2018 by the Tennessee Titans and played very little defense while there.

How he fits in with Las Vegas: Dickerson is far from a sure thing to make the 53-man roster. and has to prove himself in training camp. This signing is different than the three previous defensive linemen who signed with the Las Vegas Raiders in free agency as Yannick Ngakoue, Solomon Thomas and Quinton Jefferson will all be part of the playing rotation. Dickerson, though, will likely need to outperform other pass rushers in training camp to make the team.
