I just caught up with the Matt Williamson of Scouts Inc. to break down Oakland’s signing of former Jacksonville defensive tackle John Henderson.

Henderson is 31 and has showed signs of wearing down. No other team made a big pitch for Henderson. Still, Williamson thinks the one-year deal is worth Oakland’s while.

Williamson: "Oakland’s run defense was atrocious last year. The Raiders are makings strides to get better there. This is another step in the right direction. Henderson is a big, wide body that will clog up the interior. I don’t think you will see him on passing downs, but he will help against the run for 25-35 plays a game. He is not a difference maker at this point. But he could be an above-average player for Oakland. I like this signing."
