The Raiders have money to spend, and they’re willing to spend it.
After landing Rams tackle Rodger Saffold earlier in the day, they’re looking at more offensive line help.
According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, Jets right tackle Austin Howard is visiting the Raiders.
Howard’s a solid run-blocker, and the Raiders clearly need multiple players up front. There’s a chance Saffold could still be a guard, but with the money they paid him earlier in the day, that seems unlikely.
Coupled with finishing a one-year deal for running back Darren McFadden, the Raiders are making an emphasis of being more physical.
Now if they just had a quarterback.
