On Friday, free-agent linebacker Philip Wheeler visited the Raiders. He apparently liked what he saw.
The team announced that Wheeler has signed a contract to join the silver and black.
“We’re excited to add another veteran to complement our talented linebacking group,”
Raiders G.M. Reggie McKenzie said in a release. “He gives us a lot of athleticism and versatility. He’s a player that can do a lot of things.”
A third-round pick in 2008, Wheeler spent four seasons with the Colts. He started for the team in Super Bowl XLIV.
