The Las Vegas Raiders signed linebacker Darron Lee and cornerback De'Vante Bausby on Thursday, the team announced.

Lee, selected 20th overall by the New York Jets in 2016, has yet to live up to his first-round status in five NFL seasons. New York traded him to the Kansas City Chiefs in 2019 for a sixth-round pick after three years and 40 games with the Jets.

Lee played in a reserve role for the Super Bowl-winning Chiefs, making 31 tackles. The 26-year-old appeared in two games with the Buffalo Bills in 2020.

Bausby, 28, has spent time with five teams in as many pro seasons after the Chiefs signed him as an undrafted free agent in 2015. He has 60 career tackles and no interceptions in 26 games.

The Raiders released corner TJ Morrison in a corresponding move.
