The Las Vegas Raiders continue to add to their revamped offense, signing wide receiver DeAndre Carter to a one-year deal.

Reports surfaced Tuesday that Carter and the Raiders had come to an agreement for one season, with a salary up to $2.375 million. Spending last season with the Los Angeles Chargers, Carter takes his talents to the Silver State to join the Silver & Black.

Jordan Schultz of was first to report the news, with the player confirming the deal thereafter.

Carter, 29, had a breakout year in 2022, catching 46 passes for 538 yards and three touchdowns with the Chargers. A talented return-man, he finished second in the NFL with 11.7 yards per punt return last season. Drafted in 2018, Carter has played for the five different organizations before joining the Raiders.

A former standout at Sacramento State, DeAndre Carter was first-team FCS All-American in 2014, racking up 99 receptions, 1,321 yards and 17 TDs. In his NFL career, he has amassed only 1,220 receiving yards and six total TDs.

Now joining a stacked WR room of Davante Adams and Hunter Renfrow, Carter will provide speed and versatility for head coach Josh McDaniels.
