In his rookie season, Willson helped the Seattle Seahawks win Super Bowl XLVIII. Over the course of that season, Willson caught 20 passes for 272 yards.
The Raiders recently lost tight end Jared Cook to the Saints in free agency. Luke Willson, mainly a pass-catching tight end, could help the Raiders out a lot offensively.
