Raiders defensive end Lamarr Houston is apparently going to get a chance to test the free agent market.
According to Adam Caplan of ESPN, the Raiders are not expected to use the tag on Houston, which will allow him to become an unrestricted free agent.
The Raiders have other priorities at the moment, specifically left tackle Jared Veldheer, so it’s not a total surprise.
The 26-year-old had 6.0 sacks last year, but will benefit of a market that won’t contain Greg Hardy or Brian Orakpo, both of whom were franchised by their teams.
Houston figures to draw plenty of interest despite his moderate production, because, well primarily because of the law of supply and demand.
