Former Bengals S Reggie Nelson has agreed to a two-year deal with the Oakland Raiders, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Nelson was tied for the league lead in interceptions with eight last year. He was elected to his first Pro Bowl after also recording 72 tackles.

He is just two years removed from a career-high of 92 tackles in 2014.

The Bengals will likely replace Nelson in the starting lineup with 2013 third-round pick Shawn Williams.
