Report: Maurice Jones-Drew visiting Raiders

Free agent running back Maurice Jones-Drew may be headed back home. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport is reporting that MJD will be visiting with the Oakland Raiders today and tomorrow.

The Jets, Dolphins, Patriots, and Steelers were all reportedly in the mix for MJD as the finalists, but Adam Schefter also reports that the Raiders are a big and real possibility for MJD.

The Raiders would be homecoming for Jones-Drew and would also fill a void of running back for Oakland after they lost Rashad Jennings to free agency. MJD isn’t the top back he once was, but it’ll be interesting to see if he or Darren McFadden would be the team’s starter if he elects to sign there.
