Reports: Raiders sign ex-Seahawks LB K.J. Wright
The Las Vegas Raiders are signing former longtime Seattle linebacker K.J. Wright to a one-year deal, NFL Network and ESPN reported Thursday.
Wright, 32, was an unrestricted free agent after a 10-year career with the Seahawks. He met with the Raiders a month ago. With the Raiders dealing with injuries among their linebackers, Wright is a fit, having played for Raiders defensive coordinator Gus Bradley when he was in Seattle.
The Raiders also traded for Denzel Perryman, another Bradley disciple, last week.
Wright started all 32 games for Seattle the past two seasons. He started 140 of his 144 games in Seattle, earning a Pro Bowl nod after the 2016 season. He has 13 1/2 career sacks, six interceptions and 941 tackles — 66 for loss.
Bradley was the defensive coordinator in Seattle from 2009-12, overlapping with Wright the final two seasons.
