The Las Vegas Raiders have signed veteran defensive tackle Gerald McCoy, the team announced Wednesday.

The two sides agreed to a one-year deal, according to ESPN's Field Yates.

The former third overall draft pick is entering his 11th season. The 33-year-old has made six Pro Bowls but is three campaigns removed from his last trip.

McCoy spent the first nine years of his career with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers before joining the Carolina Panthers in 2019 and the Dallas Cowboys last year.

After signing a three-year pact with the Cowboys last March, McCoy suffered a ruptured quad in August that required season-ending surgery. Dallas waived him as a result.

McCoy has 59.5 career sacks, registering five during his last campaign in 2019.
