Raiders reach out to Mychal Kendricks


                              



 Raiders signed Tahir Whitehead, Emmanuel Lamur, Derrick Johnson in free agency, not to mention already have guys like Nicholas Morrow and Marquel Lee on the roster but that hasn't stopped Jon Gruden and his staff from reaching out to other linebackers.

The Oakland Raiders reached out to former Eagles LB Mychal Kendricks this morning to ask for a visit. No doubt a signing like Kendricks would be a huge upgrade for the Raiders but it's also a very crowded LB group. Kendricks release from Eagles was a bit of a shock since it was so late but it certainly did not hurt his stock. If Raiders want to get him in for a visit they might have to wait since 3 other teams have also called Kendricks. 

Raiders are hoping he leaves those teams interested without a deal and perhaps they can lock him in but the question out there is why they feel the need for Kendricks if they are happy with Derrick Johnson?
Kendricks who is a middle linebacker would certainly get the nod over Johnson if he was signed to Raiders.  Only time will tell if the Raiders get the visit (they are hoping for one as soon as Friday)
or if Kendricks signs somewhere else, or simply waits for the highest bidder.
UPDATE
Kendricks has visited Minnesota, Raiders are getting the next visit, after that Kendricks is supposed to visit Cleveland. Raiders want to make sure that visit never happens. The visit should be either WED or THUR as Raiders are really pushing for an ASAP visit.
