ESPN's Adam Schefter reported on NFL Live Friday that the Raiders remain interested in signing free agent Cedric Benson.
"Cedric Benson is still on the Raiders' radar," said Schefter, who suggested a deal would likely happen "down the line" -- perhaps just before or early in training camp. Per Schefter, the Raiders have visions of a bit of a thunder-and-lightning backfield with Benson's power complementing Darren McFadden's open-field shake and bake. The new coaching staff doesn't sound especially taken with second-year back Taiwan Jones. Mike Goodson is a rock-solid No. 3 option.
