Raiders Sign Jalin Marshall, Former AAF Wide Receiver, to Talented Group

The Raiders added another receiver to the mix by signing Jalin Marshall, he announced on Tuesday.

Marshall can play all receiver positions and offers some return ability to the group. He also has some NFL experience, after spending two-plus seasons with the New York Jets. He was on the active roster in 2016 and the practice squad in 2017, but was released last spring.

The Ohio State product played for the now-defunct AAF's Orlando Apollos earlier this year, and scored the league's first touchdown.

Marshall, like most young receivers, has an uphill climb to the regular-season roster though he will be given a fair shake during the offseason program and training camp.

The Raiders have plenty of talent at his position with Antonio Brown and Tyrell Willams as roster locks.

Returner Dwayne Harris is essentially set to make a possible six-man receiver corps. Fifth-round receiver Hunter Renfrow is also in the mix with J.J. Nelson, undrafted free agent Keelan Doss and second-year pro Marcell Ateman.
