Raiders meeting with Tollefson


The Raiders let slip away defensive lineman Dave Tollefson in 2007. Tollefson ultimately signed with the New York Giants and played a part in their two Super Bowl victories the past five seasons.
Now, the Raiders are doing what they can to get Tollefson back in the uniform he donned for a short time five years ago. Tollefson confirmed in a text that he is visiting the Raiders right now. He said he will keep me apprised of his progress throughout the day.
Tollefson, 29, plays defensive end and defensive tackle, as well as special teams. He started only two of the 63 games he played for the Giants. However, he played quite a bit as part of the Giants line rotation. He recorded five sacks last season.
Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie is familiar with Tollefson from their time together with the Green Bay Packers in 2006.
The Packers selected Tollefson in the NFL draft that season. However, Tollefson failed to gain much traction because of injuries and was released after the 2006 season.
