The Raiders are starting to look for wide receivers to ensure they have enough players available for their Monday Night matchup against the San Diego Chargers. Two veterans they've looked at are Jabar Gaffney and Tiquan Underwood.
Not sure if he means inside the building fora visit or workout, but #Raiders LB Aaron Curry said he saw WR Tiquan Underwood today.— Adam Caplan (@caplannfl) September 5, 2012
The current receiving corps of the Raiders is really limited for the season opener. Denarius Moore continues to be bothered by a hamstring, Jacoby Ford has a sore foot and Juron Criner has a twisted ankle. That leaves only Darrius Heyward-Bey as the only proven starter still healthy, with Rod Streater likely to join him. But Oakland could only have two receivers of their original starting five available for the season opener.
Gaffney had a productive season with the Redskins last year and could be a solid pass catcher. Underwood has 11 receptions in the NFL, but was released by the Bucs after signing with Tampa on May 7th and could provide some speed on the outside.
