The Raiders have agreed to terms with WR Ashley Lelie on what will likely be a one-year contract.
The Raiders would be Lelie's fourth team in the last four seasons.
Lelie, 28, spent last season with the 49ers. He was with Atlanta in 2006 and spent the first four seasons of his career in Denver.
Lelie would fill the role that was supposed to be Drew Carter's as a deep threat. Lelie has averaged 17.2 yards a catch for his career, but is coming off a career-worst 11.5 yard per catch season with the 49ers.
Lelie played in 15 games and finished with a career-low 10 catches. He was bothered by a calf injury during training camp with the 49ers and cut on Saturday.
Lelie's best season was in 2004 when he started 16 games with 54 catches for 1,084 yards with seven touchdowns.
In terms of catches and touchdowns, Lelie's career numbers rank behind only Javon Walker on the team.
The Raiders were woefully inexperienced behind Walker and Ronald Curry. And if the Raiders give Lelie a limited set of plays that utilize what he does best -- get down the field deep -- he could be active for next Monday's season opener against Denver.
The Raiders will need to make a roster move once the signing is official. Chances are one of the team's extra offensive or defensive linemen would be released.
FB Luke Lawton's hasn't been officially re-signed yet.
