The Las Vegas Raiders reportedly agreed to a trio of signings on Monday afternoon, securing players on both sides of the ball. 

According to Vic Tafur of The Athletic, defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins will return on a one-year deal. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said the team will keep offensive guard Denzelle Good on a two-year contract, after reporting that the team is expected to re-sign wideout Zay Jones.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo later added that Good's deal was worth $8.36 million with $3.19 million guaranteed. The Houston Chronicle's Aaron Wilson said Hankins was on the books for $3.5 million, split equally between a signing bonus and guaranteed salary. 

Terms of the deal for Jones weren't immediately available. 

The 25-year-old is getting another chance with the team after a down year in his second season with the franchise, where he was dealt in 2019 from the Buffalo Bills in exchange for a fifth-round pick. The East Carolina product was a regular contributor during his time in Buffalo, making 27 starts through 36 games in parts of three seasons, but he wasn't as productive with the Raiders. 

In 2019, he posted 147 yards in 10 appearances with the team, then went on to grab 154 yards and a touchdown in 2020, when he was only on the field for 27 percent of offensive snaps. 

He'll join a wideout corps that includes Henry Ruggs III, Bryan Edwards and Hunter Renfrow along with John Brown, who the team reportedly agreed to terms with on Wednesday. 

Along the offensive line, the Raiders have reportedly traded three-time Pro Bowl center Rodney Hudson after trading Trent Brown and then re-signed Richie Incognito after releasing him earlier this month. Good is a rare player who was a part of the unit in 2020. He was hardly used with the Indianapolis Colts through his first three seasons but emerged over the past two seasons with the Raiders, missing just one regular season game. 

Hankins has also blossomed into a key cog on the defensive line since joining the Raiders in 2018. He has missed just one regular season game over the past three seasons and appeared on more than 61 percent of defensive snaps in each of the last two seasons, posting 48 tackles and four quarterback hits in 2020.
