The Raiders are continuing to cast a wide net in hopes of adding a veteran linebacker to what is a thing group right now.
On Tuesday, the Raiders are hosting Vontaze Burfict, NFL Media's Tom Pelissero reported. The veteran linebacker was cut by the Bengals on Monday, and has a long relationship with Oakland's defensive coordinator Paul Guenther.
Guenther served as Burfict's defensive coordinator in Cincinnati for four seasons from 2014-2017.
The 28-year-old Burfict has been in the spotlight for his multiple suspensions and acts of dirty play.. He's been suspended three times in his seven-year career, and missed the first four games last season due to violating the league's PED policy.
In 2018, Burfict played in seven games and finished with 33 tackles.
The news comes one day after the Raiders reportedly hosted linebackers Manti Te'o and Aaron Lynch. The Raiders currently have a trio of Marquel Lee, Jason Cabinda and Tahir Whitehead to trot out as their linebackers.
