The Oakland Raiders weekend just got a lot, lot worse as just minutes after it was reported that Michael Oher had signed with the Tennessee Titans on a $5 million per year contract it was reported that Raiders top offensive line target Donald Penn left the Raiders facilities without a contract and is on his way to a visit with Washington.
The report comes from NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

This is a huge blow for Reggie McKenzie’s seemingly sound plan for bolstering his offensive and defensive front ends following the departures of Jared Veldheer and Lamarr Houston. After missing out on Oher the Raiders will need to hope that Washington can’t close a deal with Penn during their visit, at this moment it appears that the odds will be bleak as Penn leaves the Bay Area without an offer he sees fit to sign off on.
