The Oakland Raiders are reportedly visiting with more defensive players.

Oakland signed three defensive players Wednesday. However, these two visitors are different because they are over 30.

The Raiders are meeting with Cincinnati cornerback Terence Newman and Detroit defensive tackle Corey Williams.

Newman, 34, has had a long, nice career, including a solid season in 2012. There are a lot of cornerbacks on the market, and Newman should come cheap. He is not near the top of the list, but he likely would have been Oakland’s best cornerback last season. The Raiders are in need of two starting cornerbacks.

Williams’ production has slipped. He was a solid player earlier in his career with Green Bay where Oakland general manager Reggie McKenzie was. If Williams, 32, is signed, he would probably be a cheaper version of Tommy Kelly. Williams is expected to be cut by Detroit.
