ALAMEDA, Calif. —The Raiders placed a casting call this offseason for their No. 3 wide receiver.

In March, they signed Griff Whalen and, after adding Jordy Nelson to replace Michael Crabtree, hosted free agents Ryan Grant and Eric Decker on visits. In April, they traded for Martavis Bryant and Ryan Switzer on April 26 and 28, respectively, and sorted through the position in training camp.

All this led to a familiar result.
