Oakland Raiders claim DE/OLB Martez Wilson off the waivers from the Saints

Today the Oakland Raiders claimed former DE/OLB Martez Wilson from the waiver wire.  Wilson was a former 3rd round pick from the New Orleans Saints.  Wilson is a former standout pass rusher who is very raw.  The Illinois product will be a huge pick up for the Raiders.

The No. 72 overall pick in the 2011 draft has five career sacks in limited duty through his first 33 career games. It’s worth the gamble for the Raiders. Wilson (6-foot-4, 252) can play outside ‘backer or defensive end in a 4-3 defense. He’ll also contribute on special teams. The Raiders waived DT Christo Bilukidi in a corresponding move.
