ALAMEDA -- The Raiders waived defensive lineman Christo Bilukidi on Wednesday and claimed off waivers linebacker Martez Wilson from the New Orleans Saints.
Bilukidi is part of the 2012 draft class -- he was taken in the sixth round -- that has failed to yield any sure-fire starters. Linebacker Miles Burris flourished last season after an injury to Aaron Curry, but he hasn't been cleared to practice yet after offseason knee surgery.
Wilson, 25, played in four games for the Saints this season and 33 during his three seasons for New Orleans. He is 6-foot-4 and 252 pounds and played collegiately at Illinois.
Bilukidi, 23, appeared in five of Oakland's six regular-season games this year. He recorded five tackles during spot duty as a backup. He played in 13 games as a rookie, when he notched eight tackles.
