Earlier Wednesday, Jennings worked out for Oakland, the running back said.
Jennings, who rushed for 283 yards on 101 carries in 2012 for Jacksonville, will compete for a backup role for the Raiders. The 6-1, 228-pound tailback has gained 944 yards in four NFL seasons, all with the Jaguars and mainly as a backup to Maurice Jones-Drew. Jennings missed the 2011 regular season with a knee injury.
Justin Forsett and Montell Owens are among the Jaguars’ tailback options behind Jones-Drew. The Jaguars have not drafted a back since 2010 (Deji Karim) and have a slew of other needs, but adding a younger rusher might make some sense. The same also holds for the Raiders, what with McFadden’s deal up after 2013.
