NFL free agency: Raiders sign speedster J.J. Nelson to receiver corps

The Raiders have signed five new players in free agency. Three of them are receivers.

That position claimed a majority Friday, when the team announced J.J. Nelson signed with the Silver and Black.

Even more speed.

Terms of the contract were not immediately disclosed.

The former Arizona Cardinal has speed, and plenty of it. He isn’t a regular starter or steady contributor, but he can take the top off a defense and has a penchant for big plays.
