Oakland Raiders claim Greg Little off waiver wire

It didn't take long for Greg Little to catch on with a new team.

The Oakland Raiders claimed the former Cleveland Browns receiver off the waiver wire, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday. The team later made the move official

Despite question marks at receiver, the Browns released Little last Friday amid character concerns.

Little is a big-bodied receiver who has a knack for getting open; however, he struggles catching the ball -- a crippling problem for a man who gets paid to catch a ball.

Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie is willing to give Little a chance to bolster his thin receiving corps with little risk. Little joins Denarius Moore, Rod Streater and free agent acquisition James Jones on the Raiders depth chart.

If his character concerns follow him to the Bay Area and he can't cut down on the drops, Little will likely hit the waiver wire again in short order.
