Reggie Nelson Leaves Visit With Raiders Without A Deal, Still A Chance He Could Sign With OAK

Update:

Adam Caplan of ESPN reports that free agent S Reggie Nelson left his visit with the Raiders without a contract.

  • However, Caplan mentions that this doesn’t necessarily mean that a deal between the Raiders and Nelson won’t happen at some point.

Vic Tafur reports that the Raiders are meeting with free agent S Reggie Nelson tonight and will have him at their facility on Tuesday.

  • Tafur ultimately expects a deal between the two parties to get done, pending Nelson passing a physical.
  • Adam Caplan confirms that the expectation is that the Raiders are “very optimistic” a deal will get done.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Raiders are bringing in free agent S Reggie Nelson for a visit today and tomorrow.

It’s been surprising to see how little interest Nelson has found since free agency opened over four weeks ago, given that he’s coming off of a productive year for the Bengals.

Indications are that Nelson won’t be back in Cincinnati next year, but the Raiders could be a good landing spot for him.

Nelson, 32, is a former first-round pick of the Jaguars back in 2007. He spent three years in Jacksonville before he was traded to the Bengals in return for David Jones and conditional draft pick.

Nelson played out his contract and is among the best available players in this year’s free agent market.

In 2015, Nelson appeared in all 16 games and recorded 77 tackles, eight interceptions, two forced fumbles, and 14 pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 9 safety out of 88 qualifying players.

We have him featured in our Best Available Free Agents list.
