The Oakland Raiders are flush with salary cap space but have signed only a few players that haven’t impressed the fan base much. While the Rodger Saffold signing was great, the re-signing of Darren McFadden and the exits by Lamarr Houston, Jared Veldheer and Rashad Jennings have irked many in the Black Hole.
That may change though as the Raiders are planning visits with two of the better defensive free agents on the market. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, both Justin Tuck and LaMarr Woodley will be visiting the Raiders on Wednesday.

The hope for the Raiders would be to hammer out deals with both, as neither have set the market on fire and may not require massive free agent deals. Then again, both players are veteran talents looking to win and that may require more money from a place like Oakland to convince Super Bowl champions to be a part of a rebuilding process.
Still, Oakland could be a fit for both players and the sides are at least meeting with each other on Wednesday.
