On Wednesday, the Oakland Raiders worked out free agent defensive end Marcus Benard.
He has received little interest since being released by the Cleveland Browns. He reached an injury settlement with the Browns earlier this month, which resulted in his release from the team.
Last week, he worked out for the Arizona Cardinals. However, they have not expressed an interest in signing Benard at this time.
The Raiders signed veteran Andre Carter a couple of days ago, but are trying to spark their pass rush. The team currently is the bottom of the entire league with just seven sacks.
Benard began the 2009 season on the Cleveland Browns practice squad. He was then promoted to the active roster on November 2009.
He played in six games during his rookie season in 2009. He had 14 tackles and 3.5 sacks for a 23-yard loss.
In 2010, he played 15 games with the Browns. He had 28 tackles and 7.5 sacks for a 33-yard loss. He also had two pass deflections and a kickoff return for 26 yards.
One year later, he played in four games. He had three tackles and an 0.5 sack for a one-yard loss.
