Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Raiders are signing free agent TE Derek Carrier to a three-year contract at the start of free agency.

Carrier, 27, originally signed on with the Raiders as an undrafted free agent out of Beloit College back in 2012. He spent a year with the Eagles before joining the 49ers at the start of the 2013 season. Carrier was later traded to Redskins in a deal that sent a 2017 conditional fifth-round pick to San Francisco.

The Redskins wound up trading him to the Rams in exchange for a 2018 seventh-round pick back in September. He just finished a three-year, $2.985 million contract that included a $400,000 signing bonus.

In 2017, Carrier appeared in 14 games for the Rams and recorded eight receptions for 71 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
