The Oakland Raiders signed linebacker Jelani Jenkins on Monday, ESPN reports.

Jenkins, 25, is at his best when using his sideline-to-sideline speed to make plays. But he is a bit undersized and that has often led to injuries.

He struggled with durability issues and missed 10 games the past two seasons for the Miami Dolphins because of various ailments. He finished with just 29 tackles in nine games last season.

The Dolphins selected Jenkins in the fourth round of the 2013 draft. He had his best season in 2014, his first year as a starter, when he led Miami with 110 tackles in addition to 3.5 sacks.
