The Raiders have snagged their second free agent linebacker in as many days.

Former Ram Cory Littleton has agreed to a deal with the team. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports it is a three-year deal worth up to $36 million with a base value of $11.75 million per year. There was a report earlier this week that the Raiders were planning to make a push for Littleton.

The Raiders reached an agreement with former Bear Nick Kwiatkoski on Monday in the first move they made to refurbish their linebacker group.

Littleton joined the Rams after going undrafted in 2016 and moved from special teamer to a starting linebacker over his four years with the team. He started every game the last two seasons and wrapped up his time in L.A. with 134 tackles, 3.5 sacks, two interceptions, two forced fumbles and four fumble recoveries in 2019.

  1. This is a great signing.

    It isnt enough though, we need way more talent in the Defense. This is a great start though.

    We need Trufant and another talent CB for starters, keep it up Mayock and Gruden.

  2. Old fashion hard work strikes gold! Now lets not mess him up with unfamiliarity.

  3. We signed Blake Martinez at 3 for 30 and we couldnt have been in on Littleton? Maybe he wanted to stay on the west coast.

  4. I thought the Pack was after this guy? He must have preferred the bright lights of Vegas over the dim glow of the street light over the Green Bay Applebees.

  5. Littleton was the #1 free agent signing we needed to make….our LB play has been awful. hopefully he can cover the talented TEs we have in our division.

  6. Awesome. Now go get WR1 with the first pick in the draft and then a CB for the second!

    Off season champs hard at it again! But then the season starts.

    Just trying to get better there, jjackwhacken.

  8. Raiders are adding studs. Now they can go into the draft without any pressure to reach for a position of need.
