ALAMEDA, Calif. – The Oakland Raiders have signed free agent WR Jalin Marshall and have also acquired a conditional seventh-round selection in the 2021 NFL Draft via a trade with the Chicago Bears, the club announced Tuesday. As part of the trade terms, the Raiders will receive the Bears’ seventh-round selection in 2021 in exchange for K Eddy Piñeiro.

The 5-foot-11, 205-pound receiver most recently spent the 2018 season with the Orlando Apollos of the Alliance of American Football. Ahead of his stint with the Apollos, Marshall spent two seasons (2016-17) with the New York Jets after signing with the club as an undrafted free agent. Marshall appeared in 10 contests for the Jets and tallied 14 receptions for 162 yards and two scores, adding 18 punt returns for 100 yards and 13 kickoff returns for 324 yards.

Prior to the NFL, the native of Middletown, Ohio, played two seasons (2014-15) at Ohio State, appearing in 27 contests while making 12 starts for the program. He compiled 74 receptions as a Buckeye, notching 976 yards (13.2 avg.) and 11 touchdown receptions, adding 27 carries for 175 yards and an additional score.

Piñeiro was originally signed by the Raiders as an undrafted free agent following the conclusion of the 2018 NFL Draft. He spent the offseason with the club and appeared in one preseason contest, making all three field goals attempted, before being placed on the Reserve/Injured List for the remainder of his rookie campaign. Piñeiro played two years at Florida, appearing in 24 games and connecting on 38-of-43 attempts for a program-record 88.4 field goal percentage.
