Report: Wide receiver Tyrell Williams to sign with Raiders

ALAMEDA — The Raiders pursuit of help for quarterback Derek Carr didn’t stop with Trent Brown and Antonio Brown.
Wide receiver Tyrell Williams, one of the top wide receivers in free agency, has agreed to terms with the Raiders, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Williams, 27, would become the fourth major piece added to the Raiders and the third on offense, with the club trading for wide receiver Antonio Brown, agreeing to terms with tackle Trent Brown, and also reportedly bringing aboard safety LaMarcus Joyner.

At 6-foot-4, 205 pounds, Williams has both jump-and-catch ability as well as the speed to get deep. He caught 41 passes for 653 yards and five touchdowns for the Los Angeles Chargers last season and in four seasons has 155 receptions for 2,530 yards, 17 touchdowns, averaging 16.3 yards per catch.
Williams’ would join Antonio Brown and Jordy Nelson in giving Carr three experienced targets.
Brown is scheduled to meet the media Wednesday at 1 p.m.
