Raiders, Wheeler agree to one-year deal
The Oakland Raiders have agreed to a one-year deal with linebacker Phillip Wheeler, according to NFL.com.
Wheeler will man the strong side linebacker spot for the Raiders, who released Kamerion Wimbley due to salary cap concerns.
Wheeler had 80 tackles and one sack in 13 games for the Colts last season.
"We're excited to add another veteran to complement our talented linebacking group," general manager Reggie McKenzie said. "He gives us a lot of athleticism and versatility. He's a player that can do a lot of things."
