Thursday, March 6th, 2008 at 2:05 pm in Oakland Raiders.
Linebacker Danny Clark, a fan favorite who was displaced as the middle linebacker when Kirk Morrison moved inside for the 2005 season, visited the Raiders facility Thursday.
No word on the level of interest on either side.
Clark was a fairly stout run defender who had problems in pass coverage. Morrison is one of the NFL’s best pass defenders at his position but struggled last season getting off blocks against the run.
Clark played for New Orleans in 2006 and Houston in 2007.
Carr visits Titans
Defensive back/return specialist Chris Carr met with Tennessee, but as a restricted free agent, the Raiders have the right to match any offer.
As an undrafted free agent, Carr brings no draft compensation if the Raiders decline to match. Same with linebacker Isaiah Ekejiuba. Defensive tackle Josh Shaw, if signed by someone else, would net a fifth-round draft pick.
Carlisle under contract
Not sure where the story got started that Cooper Carlisle is on the open market.
Carlisle signed a two-year contract and there was no void involved. He remains the Raiders right guard.
