These days you can’t be too careful. Just because the Raiders bring you in for a workout and take a moment to talk contract does not mean you’re yet a Raider. Just ask Jared Gaither about that.
Stephon Heyer is the newest free agent flirtation the Raiders are engaging. Word is slowly trickling out through the interweb claiming that Oakland has inked Heyer to a deal. Even Heyer himself has said as much via Facebook.
However until Hue Jackson makes it official we’re just going to go with the “rumored” approach for now.
If Heyer is in fact being suited for a Silver and Black jersey then he’ll be in the mix for the right tackle job. The former Redskin started 16 games in the Nation’s capital back in ’09. He was among a few other potential Raiders brought in for workouts this week.
Should Heyer join the Raiders he’ll be yet another Maryland Terrapin in Al’s collection. Including Bruce Campbell and Darrius Heyward-Bey, Heyer would be the third. Of course that number could have swelled to four had Gaither received a clean bill of health.
