Oakland Raiders head coach Jon Gruden reportedly came away from a recent meeting with former Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Doug Martin and the team is expected to pursue the free agent veteran, according to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport.
Oakland is now expected to make a strong push to sign Martin in free agency.
With current Raiders’ running back Marshawn Lynch slated to earn $4M 2018, with $4M in potential bonuses, it is interesting to see Oakland’s interest in Martin.
Broncos Sign Andy Janovich to Three-Year Extension
According to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, Janovich’s new deal will net him a signing bonus of $1.35 million and includes $3.22 million fully guaranteed, making him the league’s third highest paid fullback.
Janovich is certainly a fan favorite in Denver, and was scheduled to hit free agency this offseason prior to inking the new deal.
Raiders Release J.J. Nelson
Nelson inked a one-year deal with the Raiders this offseason, but the two-year veteran was cut so the team can make the necessary room for the addition of wider receiver Zay Jones.
Nelson was added in the hopes he would provide a viable speed threat in Oakland, but has yet to produce this season.
Jets’ Chris Herndon Still Out
Herndon suffered a Grade 1 hamstring strain last week while running routes, and has been ruled out of Sunday’s game against the Dallas Cowboys and will likely miss next week’s tilt against the New England Patriots.
Herndon collected 39 receptions for 502 yards and four touchdowns last season for the Jets.
