The Oakland Raiders will sign former Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Tyrell Williams to a four-year, $44 million deal, multiple outlets reported Wednesday. According to multiple reports, the deal includes $22 million guaranteed and a maximum value of $47 million.

Williams, 27, was one of the top wide receivers available in a weaker free agent market, after producing over the last three years in an auxiliary role with the Chargers. He caught 41 passes for 653 yards and five touchdowns last season, averaging 15.9 yards per catch. A former undrafted free agent out of Western Oregon, Williams' best year came in 2016, when he was forced into a larger role by injuries and totaled 69 grabs for 1,059 yards and seven scores. Through 52 career games (37 starts), Williams has 155 catches for 2,530 yards and 17 touchdowns while averaging 16.3 yards per catch.

The Raiders already added Antonio Brown to their receiving corps with a trade last weekend, which became official Wednesday when the new league year opened.
