Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the Oakland Raiders have scheduled a free agent visit with cornerback Ronald Bartell, formerly of the Rams.
Bartell will arrive at club headquarters tonight.
Key for Bartell will be his ability to pass a physical. He suffered two fractures in his neck early last season and missed the rest of the year.
Bartell was still playing at a high level before the injury, and is only 30 years old. He’d immediately become the most experienced member of Oakland’s cornerback corps.
