Raiders re-signed DT C.J. Wilson to a two-year contract.

28-year-old Wilson's calling card is versatility, as he can line up at any interior line position and even play strong-side defensive end in a pinch. He finished 2014 with 23 tackles and a pair of sacks, starting 7-of-16 games. Wilson should return as a reserve behind Dan Williams and Antonio Smith.

Free agent DL C.J. Wilson will visit the Seahawks this week.

Wilson appeared in all 16 games (seven starts) with Oakland last season, recording 23 tackles and two sacks. He would be a candidate to play inside in Seattle's 4-3 scheme. Wilson turns 28 later this month.

Raiders signed DL C.J. Wilson, formerly of the Packers.

Wilson, 26, appeared in just eight games last year as a rotational lineman. He was mostly a 3-4 end with the Packers, but figures to play defensive tackle in Oakland's 4-3 scheme. Wilson joins Justin Tuck, Antonio Smith, and Lamarr Woodley as free agents the Raiders have added to their defensive line.

Packers RE C.J. Wilson was forced from the Packers' Week 12 game with a knee injury, and will not return.

Wilson has headed to the locker room, and was in "some agony," according to the NBC telecast. He was ruled out after halftime. Mike Neal and Jerel Worthy have come on opposite Ryan Pickett. If Wilson's injury is serious, it would be more bad news for the Packers' walking-wounded defense.

Packers RE C.J. Wilson (groin) is listed as questionable for Week 3 on Monday night against the Seahawks.

Wilson was a limited participant in practice throughout the week. He beat out second-round rookie Jerel Worthy for the starting job in training camp and preseason, but if Wilson can't go Worthy should see plenty of snaps.

C.J. Wilson has won the starting right end job in the Packers' 3-4 base.

He beat out second-round rookie Jerel Worthy at the "Okie" spot. Last season, Wilson played behind Jarius Wynn and Howard Green before moving ahead of Green over the final two regular season games.

Packers DE C.J. Wilson suffered a concussion in Green Bay's preseason game against the Cardinals on Friday.

A seventh-round pick last season, Wilson appeared in 15 games, starting two. He notched 19 tackles and one sack. His roster spot should be secure, but this will hurt Wilson's already long-shot chances of beating out RE Mike Neal.

Packers DE C.J. Wilson is expected to draw his first career start in Week 6 if DEs Ryan Pickett (ankle) and Mike Neal (shoulder) are unable to play.

Both Pickett and Neal are listed as questionable. Wilson is a solid pass rusher, and the banged up Packers are hoping the rookie can hold down the fort if he starts.

Packers signed seventh-round DE C.J. Wilson to a four-year contract.

An East Carolina product, Wilson will compete for a roster spot in training camp with Jairus Wynn and Justin Harrell, among others. Wilson's edge is that he probably rushes the passer best of the group, although Harrell's draft status and Wynn's experience in the system are advantages too.
