Oakland Raiders free agency day two recap

Day two of the 2014 NFL Free Agency period could not have gone a whole lot worse for the Raiders. While much of Raider Nation was rather upset about the lack of major signings on day one, no one was happy after day two. Rather than announcing another signing or bringing back one of their free agents, the Raiders took a step backwards.

Hits

None. The Raiders were unable to ink any new players to contracts on day two of free agency. They also did not bring any of their own free agents back despite so many still being out there.

Misses

While the Raiders did not see any of their players from 2013 sign with other teams, they did watch another left tackle sign elsewhere. Rodger Saffold, the Raiders left tackle for a day, failed his physical and as a result, the Raiders refused to sign him. Soon thereafter, the Rams re-signed Saffold saying they had no problems with his shoulder (the body part supposedly bothering the Raiders).

Rumors

The Raiders wined and dined with Justin Tuck and LaMarr Woodley on Wednesday night in an attempt to bring the two defensive players to the Silver and Black. The Raiders also reportedly met with a number of other defensive players, such as Henry Melton and Jason Hatcher on a day that was supposed to be a good one for the Raiders. Unfortunately, there were no signings. Woodley is reportedly visiting with the Tennessee Titans today.

Former Raiders corner back Tracy Porter is receiving interest from other teams but has not yet signed anywhere else.
