Jalin Marshall is back in the NFL.

The former Ohio State H-back signed a contract with the Oakland Raiders on Tuesday.

Marshall's return to the NFL comes after an impressive stint in the short-lived AAF this spring. In eight games with the Orlando Apollos before the league folded, Marshall caught 26 passes for 364 yards and three touchdowns, good enough to rank him among the top 10 receivers in the league in all three categories.

According to Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Marshall participated in the Raiders' rookie minicamp this past weekend. He becomes the third Ohio State player on the Raiders' roster, joining defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins and cornerback Gareon Conley.

Marshall is the third Buckeye who played in the AAF to get another shot at the NFL. Marcus Baugh signed with the Carolina Panthers last week. Tracy Sprinkle participated in the Kansas City Chiefs' minicamp this past weekend, though he has not yet signed by the team.

Former Ohio State cornerback Doran Grant and offensive tackle Chase Farris also played in the AAF, but have not yet landed with NFL teams.

Marshall previously played for the NFL's New York Jets in 2016, but has not played in a regular-season NFL game since.
