The Oakland Raiders have signed offensive lineman Ed Wang, who has played in six career games, all with the Buffalo Bills in 2010.
The 6-5, 321-pound Wang was waived-injured by the Bills last season. He entered the league as the Bills’ fifth-round selection (140th overall) in the 2010 NFL Draft, becoming the first-ever Chinese-American player drafted into the league.
The Ashburn, Va., native was an all-Atlantic Coast Conference second-team selection at Virginia Tech in 2009 and saw action at both tackle positions and at tight end during his collegiate career. Both of Wang’s parents were members of the Chinese Olympic team in the 1970s.
