2014 NFL free agency: Linebacker Rob Jackson to visit Raiders
The market for pass rushers kicked off early during the NFL free agency period and plenty of players were cashing in on big pay days, but now the market has settled and teams are preparing for the second wave of signings.
One of the better pass rushers that is still available to sign is Washington Redskins outside linebacker Rob Jackson, who spent last season as a reserve.
The Oakland Raiders have been aggressive during the signing period and have already bolstered their defense with LaMarr Woodley and Justin Tuck. Now they may have some interest in adding Jackson to the mix as well.
According to Mike Jones of the Washington Post, Jackson will be visiting with the Raiders at some point in the upcoming week.
Over the past two seasons, Jackson has racked up 6.5 sacks for the Redskins. While Jackson isn't a dynamic game-changer or a player that will drastically improve your team on the defensive side of the ball, he is a solid player that would add another body to the Raiders rotation in rushing situations and he could also become a big contributor on special teams.
