Las Vegas Raiders sign WR Albert Wilson to active roster
Announced Tuesday, the Las Vegas Raiders sign WR Albert Wilson from the practice squad to the active roster. Prior to his time in the Raiders practice squad, Wilson has been out of the league ever since he was cut by the Minnesota Vikings this past offseason in August.
Adding to their receiving weapons, the Raiders sign WR Albert Wilson after the upset loss on Monday Night Football against the Kansas City Chiefs. The signing is a nice boost of speed needed at the receiving positions, and Wilson also brings his dynamic ability to catch along with his 7-year experience in the league.
Currently in his eighth NFL season, the 5 foot 9, 200 pound Wilson is now 30 years of age. He began his pro career with the Kansas City Chiefs from 2014 to 2017 after being signed as an undrafted free agent. From 2018 to 2019, and again in 2021, he played for the Miami Dolphins.
Over his career, the Georgia State Panther has played in 89 total games with 38 starts, while recording 218 receptions for 2,499 yards and 12 touchdowns. In addition, Wilson has rushed for 160 yards and one touchdown, as well as 72 passing yards and one touchdown off of 2 passing completions.
As the Raiders sign WR Albert Wilson, he should step in and help the Raiders offense along with receivers Hunter Renfrow, Mack Hollins, and Keelan Cole in the coming weeks. It’s even more important now that there’s a possibility of Davante Adams missing some time due to a post game altercation that we rather not talk about. C’mon Davante..
