The Raiders continued a busy Monday by signing defensive lineman Jordan Willis.

The team announced the signing on Monday afternoon. They have also come to agreements with tight end O.J. Howard and safety Jaquan Johnson to kick off the week.

Willis joined the 49ers in a mid-2020 trade with the Jets and appeared in 26 regular season games and six postseason contests for the NFC West club through the end of last season. He had 27 tackles, 7.5 sacks, two forced fumbles, and a fumble recovery in the regular season outings and five tackles in the playoffs.

The Raiders re-signed Jerry Tillery, but have seen defensive linemen Clelin Ferrell and Andrew Billings sign elsewhere since free agency opened last week.

  1. Please put some respeck on the legend that is Jordan Willis. He will be forever remembered in 49ers lore for the blocked punt in Lambeau that ended up sending the 49ers to another victory over Erin in the playoffs, while advancing to the NFCCG.

    It was an epic game and Willis came up huge. If the Raiders can make the playoffs, they will be at an advantage with Willis on the line – he plays BIG in big games.
