In an update published by, it was reported that the recently released CB Shawntae Spencer visited the Raiders on Friday, just a day after he we given his walking papers from the team on the other side of the bay, the San Francisco 49ers.

This, while not hugely significant, should be kept in mind for all those pulling for Tracey Porter to don the Silver and Black next year. While Oakland could try and sign both free agents, I only see them signing one.

While there's only speculation at this point about who will be signed, and both players only held meetings, it will be interesting to see who will be signed in the coming days.

Stay tuned for more info.
