Both the NFL Network and ESPN are reporting the Raiders are planning to sign Dave Rayner to kick against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Rayner by far was the most experienced place kicker of the three who tried out Friday (Rhys Lloyd and Ricky Schmitt were the others) with Sebastian Janikowski ailing with a hamstring injury.
When the Raiders sign Rayner, they’ll need to waive, release or place a player on injured reserve to make room on the roster.
Janikowski wasn’t moving well Friday, and it makes sense to give him the week off and rehab through the bye week so he could possibly be ready to kick Nov. 6 when the Raiders host the Broncos.
