Bernard Scott to meet with Raiders

Bernard Scott didn’t get a chance to head into free agency with a good head of steam.

His season ended in Week Two with a torn ACL, leaving him to rehab in the shadows while other players got to burnish their resumes ahead of hitting the open market. Scott’s recovered enough to show teams that he’s ready to resume his career and he’ll be hitting the road this week to do just that.

Mike Garafolo of USA Today reports that Scott will be in Oakland to visit with the Raiders on Wednesday. Scott will go through drills to show the Raiders that his knee is sound. If they agree, Scott could fill a complementary role to Darren McFadden that opened up when Mike Goodson signed with the Jets.

Scott ran for 1,035 yards and four touchdowns during his four years with the Bengals and Garafolo reports that a return to Cincinnati could be in the cards. He’s expected to meet with them in the near future as well and the Bengals are believed to be in the market for a back or backs who can provide a speedier option than BenJarvus Green-Ellis.

    LOL . I would love to go to a thrift shop with Reggie McKenzie . He really seems good at value shopping which is something the Raiders desperately needed .

    If there were 100 teams on the NFL, the Raiders would finish at 101.

    If he goes to the Raiders and everything is on track for him to be healthy then there is no way they let him visit anyone else.

    This is exactly the kind of guy they are signing this season. Blue collar, no ego, willing to work for a small one year prove it deal.

    Bring him back Cincy. Be a better compliment to the law firm than Felix Jones.

    all good, but if Felix Jones wants to play with DMC again lets at least find out for how much…

    Another guy to keep an eye on, and see what the Lions do with him is Jahvid Best, not so sure they want to pay him 2 million to back up Reggie Bush.

    I like Bernard a lot but he’s just too fragile, let him go Cincy.

    I’m sorry but the name BenJarvus Green-Ellis sounds like a type of insect.
