Raiders coach Tom Cable declined to say whether any players had visited the Raiders during his conference call Friday evening, but needless to say we’ll be looking for new uniform numbers when practice starts in about 10 minutes.
Linebacker Morlon Greenwood was scheduled to visit, according to the National Football Post. In addition, safety John Lynch, while visiting the Bucs training camp, told the Pewter Report he believed Brooks was going to visit the Raiders Friday.
If true, the Raiders are either worried about the plantar fasciatis bothering Jon Alston or simply of the belief they need help at linebacker, where Thomas Howard is the only starter assured of retaining his position.
On his Web site, Brooks acknowledged a visit to New Orleans and said his agents were talking to the Raiders about a visit. There is indication when that site was updated.
