The Oakland Raiders sent word via their official Twitter account earlier today that they have signed free agent linebacker Jelani Jenkins.

With the Miami Dolphins last year he had 15 tackles in seven starts according to, which doesn’t necessarily make it a big splash but certainly it’s a deal with some upside.

Worse case scenario for the Raiders is Jenkins is unable to stay healthy and wont be contributing. However, best case is they can get the Jenkins from 2014 who started 14 out of 15 games, had 83 tackles, and sacked the quarterback three and a half times.
