The Oakland Raiders have announced the signing of rookie quarterback Tyler Wilson.
The Raiders have now signed eight of the team’s 10 selections from the 2013 NFL Draft.
Wilson (6-2, 215) was selected 112th overall by the Raiders in April. He played in 37 career games with 24 starts in four years at Arkansas, setting program records with 7,765 career passing yards on 593 completions. He also totaled 52 touchdown passes, becoming just the fourth quarterback in Arkansas history to top 50 career scoring tosses.
Given the Raiders current quarterback situation, I believe there’s a chance Wilson will start at some point this season.

The Oakland Raiders enter the 2013 season as one of the most consistent teams in the NFL. Unfortunately for the Raiders and their fans alike, they are consistently bad.
