Jennings actually worked out for the Raiders earlier in the day, so it’s not all that surprising that a deal came together.
Oakland also met with the Bernard Scott on Wednesday, but they apparently felt better about the idea of signing Jennings. The Raiders have actually been fairly busy in regards to signing free agents in the past few days.
With the loss of Mike Goodson to the Jets via free agency this offseason, the Raiders have a need for a reliable backup behind Darren McFadden, who has yet to play in all 16 games during his five seasons in NFL.
Last year, Jennings produced only 2.80 yards per carry average while filling in for an injured Maurice Jones-Drew. Hopefully for the Raiders he’ll be able to contribute at a higher level next season.
