The Las Vegas Raiders are continuing to expand their roster this offseason.

The latest addition is former third-round selection (No. 70 overall) by the Tennessee Titans in the 2013 NFL Draft, cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson.

During his first three seasons as a Titan, he appeared in 24 games including 14 starts. He set multiple career highs in 2014, including 11 starts, 57 tackles (48 solos) and 10 passes defended.

From 2016, Wreh-Wilson played for the Atlanta Falcons, appearing in 41 games including three starts. Last season, he set career highs with 15 games played and three interceptions.

Wreh-Wilson also has the post-season experience, as he appeared in two playoff games for the Falcons in 2017.

Wreh-Wilson’s addition to the Raiders is for depth purposes more than anything. He won’t be a starting cornerback for the Silver and Black, at least at first, but he’ll bring eight years of experience, which will help rookie talents such as 2021 NFL Draft selections safety Tre’von Moehrig (second round), safety Tyree Gillespie (fourth round) and cornerback Nate Hobbs (fifth-round).

Raider Nation will find out Wreh-Wilson’s impact on the team when the regular season comes rolling around in a couple of months.
