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.
With training camp two months away, the Raiders already are pretty much set with their offensive and defensive starting lineups. Yes, camp always creates a surprise or two, and the Raiders would welcome any sort of competition across the lineup to raise the level of play.
But if you assume first-round pick Henry Ruggs gets a starting nod at wide receiver and that free agent pickups Cory Littleton (LB), Nick Kwiatkoski (LB), Damarious Randall (S) and Maliek Collins (DT) do the same at their positions, it means only a few big battles loom for starting jobs.
Here is a look at three:
With Travon Mullen solidifying himself as a starter at one cornerback, the Raiders go to training camp needing to find a starter at the other cornerback spot.
The Raiders’ proceeds from the sale of personal seat licenses at Allegiant Stadium continues to smash original estimates and has now climbed to $549 million.
Initial estimates by the team projected PSL sales would generate around $250 million.
When the PSLs sold out in January, the revenue generated by sales sat at $478 million. The new total provided at Thursday’s Las Vegas Stadium Authority board meeting revealed that number is still rising.

The $71 million increase from January is tied to seat holders who are on the various financing plans making payments, according to Raiders President Marc Badain.
All the proceeds from the PSL sales are being infused into the nearly $2 billion stadium now under construction.
