The Raiders and Bills were two of the teams vying to sign Josh Freeman, who decided to cast his lot with the Vikings instead.
Now the two teams are both in the mix for the services of Pat White. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that White will leave Buffalo and head to Oakland to work out for the Raiders on Tuesday.
That report comes on the heels of another one from Schefter that had the Bills asking White to hang around Buffalo after his workout in the event they wanted to sign him. The team also worked out Dennis Dixon, but didn’t follow up with interest in signing him. The team announced Monday that they will promote Thad Lewis from the practice squad and make him their starter against the Bengals in Week Six.
White had some strong moments for the Redskins in the preseason and his experience in systems similar to the ones the Bills and Raiders are running this season would seem to make him a decent backup fit in either place.
