Raiders Sign Former Patriots Receiver

The Las Vegas Raiders have signed free agent wide receiver Kristian Wilkerson, the team announced on Monday. 

The Las Vegas club also subsequently released receiver Tyler Johnson as well. 

Wilkerson, who previously played for the New England Patriots for two seasons in 2020/21, did not appear in any games last season due to being placed on IR on August 30, 2022, and was eventually waived by the Patriots on February 15, 2023. 

The pass-catcher originally joined the Titans as an undrafted free agent on May 4, 2020, but was waived during final roster cuts before the regular season began. 

Wilkerson has appeared in just four games (one start) in his brief career, which he has recorded four receptions for 42 yards, and two touchdowns.
