Former Kentucky Wesleyan Panther Keelan Cole is onto his third team in his NFL career, as he signed with the Las Vegas Raiders on Wednesday.

Cole will join the Raiders after playing the 2021 season with the New York Jets, in which he played 15 games, started 11 and amassed 29.9 yards per game.

Cole signed a one-year deal with Las Vegas, as he is set to make $1.2675 million and received a $150,000 signing bonus.

Cole joins a Raiders wide receiver that has gone through a lot of changes this offseason, acquiring longtime Green Bay Packers and Pro Bowl wide receiver Davante Adams. They also most recently traded 2021 standout Bryan Edwards, giving Cole an opportunity at a lot of playing time with Raiders quarterback Derek Carr throwing him the ball.
