Alameda, CA ( - The Oakland Raiders signed former Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew on Friday.

Terms of the deal were not released, but according to various reports it's for three years.

Jones-Drew spent the first eight seasons of his career with Jacksonville before becoming a free agent after this past season.

In 2013, he rushed for 803 yards and five touchdowns, adding 314 receiving yards.

"I have a ton left in my game," Jones-Drew said. "The only goal I have is to win and that's it."

For his career, Jones-Drew, an Oakland native, has run for 8,071 yards and 68 scores, while accumulating 2,873 yards and 11 touchdowns receiving.

Also Friday, the Raiders signed former Packers defensive end C.J. Wilson.

Wilson was limited to just eight games in 2013 after starting seven of the 11 games he appeared in with Green Bay in 2012.

Over four seasons, all with Green Bay, Wilson has recorded 76 tackles, 3 1/2 sacks and one pass defensed.

The Raiders also re-signed defensive tackle Pat Sims on Friday. Sims started a career-high 16 games last season and had a pair of sacks among his 49 tackles.
