An agent representing running back Taiwan Jones wants to set the record straight regarding his client and a potential visit with the Raiders.
Jones, according to Doug Hendrickson, did not have a meeting date actually set with Oakland.
When asked at the 49ers pro day whether he had visited with the Raiders, Jones said he hadn’t because he had gotten back too late from a trip to Miami.
Hendrickson said the characterization that Jones had “missed a meeting” was incorrect.
To be fair, it’s a whirlwind for a lot of these guys leading up to the draft and they’re not always sure what’s on their schedule until informed by their representation.
The Raiders were represented by running backs coach Kelly Skipper at Jones’ pro day at Los Medanos College.
Meanwhile, the National Football Post, which originally reported an impending Jones-Raiders visit (along with Miami and San Francisco), said Oakland hosted Miami tight end Richard Gordon.
