After a flurry of offensive free agent signings to start the offseason, Oakland Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie finally addressed a position of need on defense in linebacker Jelani Jenkins.

According to a Monday afternoon report from Eddie Paskal of, Oakland Raiders' quarterback E.J. Manuel revealed his reasoning for making his way to the Bay Area as an unrestricted free agent.

EJ Manuel entered the National Football League four years ago surrounded by the hype of being a first-round quarterback expected to boost the hopes of a struggling franchise. He was a rookie starter who lost that job in his second season, a setback for a physically gifted passer from Florida State hoping for better.

The Raiders notably finished last season with a 12-4 record and appear to be on the upswing behind the leadership of starting quarterback Derek Carr.

In his contract year in 2016, Jenkins played in just nine games (seven starts) due to a combination of hand and knee injuries, essentially keeping him from finding his rhythm.

The Dolphins drafted Jenkins in the fourth round of the 2013 NFL Draft.

During their lone season together in 2014-15, the 27-year-old quarterback produced 76 completions and 838 yards through the air. He had 219 tackles, 3½ sacks, three forced fumbles, one fumble recovery and five passes defensed.

Condo will return to the Raiders for his 11th season after serving as the team's long snapper since 2007. Last season, he became the 19th player in franchise history to play in at least 155 games.
