The Oakland Raiders have claimed LB Martez Wilson via waivers from the New Orleans Saints, General Manager Reggie McKenzie announced Wednesday.

The 6-foot-4, 252-pounder spent the previous two-plus seasons as a member of the Saints, where he appeared in 33 games, including one start. Wilson has totaled 30 tackles (21 solo), five sacks, two passes defensed, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery in his career. He also played a key role for New Orleans’ special teams unit.

Wilson appeared in four games this season for New Orleans, posting four tackles and one sack.

In 2012, the Illinois product appeared in all 16 games at both defensive end and on special teams, posting 18 tackles (12 solo), three sacks and also adding a blocked punt. In his rookie campaign, the 2011 third-round pick played in 13 games and helped New Orleans reach the Divisional round of the playoffs.

In a corresponding move, the Raiders have waived DT Christo Bilukidi.
