The Las Vegas Raiders added to their stable of tight ends Tuesday, announcing the signing of Jesper Horsted.

In all, the Raiders now have seven tight ends on their roster.

Horsted, 25, was previously with the Chicago Bears. He played in six games in 2019 (starting one) and seven games in 2021. In all, he’s caught 10 passes for 108 yards and three touchdowns.

Horsted has also been a standout on special teams, where he’s logged 121 snaps. He was waived by the Bears in May.

A product of Princeton, Horsted joined the Bears after going undrafted in 2019. He set program records at the Ivy League school for receptions (196) and receiving touchdowns (28).
