Raiders agreed to terms with SLB Philip Wheeler on a one-year contract.
The 27-year-old Wheeler will replace Kamerion Wimbley as Oakland's starting strong-side linebacker. Wheeler is an obvious downgrade as an edge rusher, but the Raiders won't be emphasizing pass-rush ability at SAM 'backer in their revised 4-3 scheme. Wheeler was quietly one of the Colts' top run defenders over the past couple of seasons. He's a solid pickup on the cheap.
