According to ESPN's Field Yates, the Las Vegas Raiders have signed former San Francisco 49ers defensive end Jordan Willis, an unrestricted free agent.

The defensive end gets a one-year deal from the Raiders.

Willis has been with the 49ers since 2020, following a trade from the New York Jets on October 27, 2020. He's recorded 7.5 sacks in a rotational role since arriving in Santa Clara.

The Cincinnati Bengals made Willis (6-4, 270) a third-round selection (No. 73 overall) out of Kansas State in 2017. He registered 12 tackles, three tackles for a loss, two sacks, four quarterback hits, and a forced fumble through nine game appearances last season, per Pro Football Reference.

Willis, 27, has recorded 92 tackles, 10.5 sacks, a pass defensed, and three forced fumbles in 69 game appearances (two starts) through his six NFL seasons with the Bengals, Jets, and 49ers.
