The Oakland Raiders reportedly claimed former Cleveland Browns wide receiver Greg Little off the waiver wire on Monday afternoon, according to a tweet from ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The 24-year-old will compete for a spot on the roster that is crowded at the wide receiver position.

The fact that Little has only caught 155 passes the past three years doesn't bode well for him. He has amassed just eight touchdowns and 1,821 receiving yards during his three-year career.

He was selected out of UNC by the Browns in the second round of the 2011 NFL Draft. He led the team in catches and receiving yards that season but was released by the team last week. Little has been troubled off-the-field, particularly in the car: Last year, he crashed his car while driving 127 mph, more than 50 mph over the speed limit.
