Raiders sign two free agents to roster

The Oakland Raiders continue to look for players that can help them turn around the franchise’s woes.

The organization announced on Wednesday that they signed free agent LB Horace Miller and re-signed WR Milton Williams III.

Miller spent last season with the Seattle Seahawks and Carolina Panthers. He joined the Seahawks in 2014 as an undrafted free agent before being waived at the end of training camp and joining the Panthers’ practice squad in October 2014. He spent one week on Carolina’s active roster, but did not play and was waived last month.

Miller originally played at UTEP after one year at Louisville. He played in 36 games (30 starts) in three seasons, totalling 120 tackles, 17 tackles for a loss, 12 sacks one forced fumble and three passes defensed.

Williams III re-joins the Silver & Black after a brief stint earlier this month when he was signed as an undrafted free agent on May 8, but was waived just four days later. In his four seasons at Delaware State, Williams III played in 40 games and totaled 126 receptions for 1,612 yards and 11 touchdowns.

In order to make room on the roster, the Raiders waived CB Travell Dixon and WR Austin Hill.
