Shelley will join the Rams after spending the offseason with the Raiders. The 26-year-old appeared in 11 games for the Vikings last season and logged 31 tackles (23 solo) and an interceptions and could now provide solid depth to a secondary that lacks proven talent.

The Raiders agreed to terms with Shelley on Thursday.
The 2019 sixth-rounder is coming off a 2022 campaign with the Vikings in which he recorded 31 tackles and an interception in 11 games. With Las Vegas, Shelley has a chance to earn steady snaps in a cornerback corps that also includes David Long, Nate Hobbs, Brandon Facyson, Amik Robertson and Sam Webb.
Shelley posted 31 tackles (23 solo) and an interception over 11 games during the 2022 regular season.
Shelley opened his first campaign with Minnesota in a limited role on special teams, and he did not even appear in six of the first eight games. However, he stepped up into a starting role with cornerback Cameron Dantzler (ankle) sitting out all but two of the team's final nine regular-season games. In the process, Shelley logged a career-high eight passes defended over that span, including the first pick of his career in Week 18 against Chicago. He also posted six more tackles and another pass defended while playing every defensive snap in the Vikings' wild-card loss to the Giants. Shelley is now set to become an unrestricted free agent for the second year in a row.
