Per Jerry McDonald of the Oakland Tribune, former New Orleans Saints cornerback Eli Apple has reached an agreement to join Jon Gruden and the
Oakland Las Vegas Raiders:

Apple missed the 2020 playoffs after suffering a late-season injury against the Tennessee Titans last December.
After joining the New Orleans Saints via an October 2018 trade with the New York Giants, Apple had an up-and-down stint with the Saints, as seemed to be the norm for his career. He still made decent splash plays for the Saints, recording his first interception within a month of joining the team.
