Raiders

Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie said he’s glad that they no longer have to “beg” people during free agency, and instead have them reaching out him.

“It’s good to see people call us and not always have to beg,” McKenzie said, via Jerry McDonald of the Bay Area News Group.  “I think people can see what we’re doing. I think our players, they’re showing on the field, and players talk to each other. We had a handful of guys play in the Pro Bowl. It’s a strong fraternity within the NFL. Guys interact.

McKenzie added that he expects them to continue considering free agent options leading up to the draft.

This thing will probably go through the draft,” McKenzie said. “You never know when guys are ready to sign. There are still guys getting released. We’re always going to be attacking. If we see someone that can help, we’re going after him.
