The Las Vegas Raiders are adding yet another veteran player on defense.

According to his agency Sportstars, the Raiders are signing cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson. UPDATE: The team has announced the signing. The Raiders are at the 90-man limit.

Wreh-Wilson did visit with the Raiders earlier this offseason. So apparently the team has decided to circle back to ink a deal.

The 31-year-old was with the Atlanta Falcons in 2020, where he had three interceptions and played in 15 games. Wreh-Wilson has played in the NFL since 2013. He has 17 career starts. Wreh-Wilson has four career interceptions — 75 percent of them came last year.

Wreh-Wilson, who spent his first three NFL seasons with the Tennessee Titans before going to Atlanta in 2016, will compete to make the Raiders’ roster as a depth piece. Previously, the Raiders signed veteran Casey Hayward and added Nate Hobbs in the fifth round of the draft.

It is a crowded cornerback room, so some cornerbacks who were on the team last season may have a difficult time making it in 2021.
