Report: Packers interested in Lamarr Houston

Ezra Shaw

Come Tuesday, it's entirely possible Raiders defensive end Lamarr Houston could be a member of the Green Bay Packers. Ian Rapport reported that the Packers have shown interest in Oakland's star defensive end.

This should come as a serious wake up call to Reggie McKenzie who has failed to resign any of the top free agents on the Raiders roster.

Houston was the best player on the Raiders defense last year leading the team with 6 sacks. He also had 69 tackles and 2 forced fumbles. At age 26, Houston was expected to be highly sought after in free agency, but Reggie McKenzie has not resigned him. Houston has publicly expressed his frustration with the Raiders lack of effort to resign him as he left them a not so subtle message on Twitter last Thursday.

Unless McKenzie can come to terms with the star defensive end soon, the Raiders will likely lose their best defensive player. McKenzie and Mark Davis have preached that rebuilding is over and that they expect to be competitive. Potentially losing their best defensive player is not a good way to start.

Reggie McKenzie should be pursuing the re-signing of Lamarr Houston as well as Jared Veldheer. Yet, it seems he is going to allow them to test their value in free agency. But why even allow teams the opportunity to sign the Raiders two best players? Only McKenzie knows the answer.
