LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Days after losing one of their star wide receivers, the Las Vegas Raiders have signed undrafted free agent Dillon Stoner.

The team announced the signing Thursday. It comes after releasing wide receiver Henry Ruggs III, who was arrested Tuesday. Ruggs is accused of driving impaired at speeds in excess of 150 mph prior to a crash that killed 23-year-old Tina Tintor.
