The Oakland Raiders have found the receiver they intend to pair opposite ​Antonio Brown.


Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, former Los Angeles Chargers wideout Tyrell Williams plans to sign with the AFC West rival as the No. 2 receiver to AB in Oakland.

A Division II product out of Western Oregon, Williams made a name for himself with the Bolts in his four seasons with the franchise. Last year, the 27-year-old receiver tallied 41 receptions for just over 650 yards and five scores.


Williams put up great numbers for the Chargers when fellow wideout Keenan Allen lost the 2016 season to injury. That year, Williams posted career highs across the board in receptions (69), yards (1,059), and touchdowns (seven).

Ironically, the Pittsburgh Steelers had reportedly also given Williams a look, as they searched for a more cost-effective option to try to replace some of the production that walked out of the door this offseason.


Williams' 15.9 yards per catch average makes him a nice playmaking complement to a man who knows a little something about making those himself.
