The Sports Network

Alameda, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Oakland Raiders claimed Greg Little off waivers on Monday, just three days after the wide receiver was released by the Cleveland Browns.

Little started 41 of the 48 games he played for the Browns after being selected with a second-round pick in the 2011 draft. His numbers dropped each year after a solid rookie season when he caught 61 passes for 709 yards.

The 24-year-old North Carolina product hauled in 53 passes for 647 yards in 2012 and finished with 41 receptions for 465 yards last year.

The club also signed rookie free agents linebacker Bojay Filimoeatu and cornerback Jansen Watson.

In corresponding moves, Oakland waived cornerback Johnny Adams, linebacker Frank Beltre and wide receiver D.J. Coles.
