Willis McGahee would like to continue his career and he has preferences where that will be.

The Denver Broncos released veteran running back Willis McGahee today and according to ESPN's Josina Anderson, McGahee has listed Oakland among a handful of destinations he'd like to go to continue his playing career.

The 9-year veteran running back spent the past two seasons in Denver, making the Pro Bowl in 2011 with 1199 rushing yards and 4 touchdowns. He was released to make way for rookie Montee Ball and second year back Ronnie Hillman. He is 31 years old but is seen as the type of running back who still has some tread left on the tires.

The Raiders are set at running back currently. They have Darren McFadden, Rashad Jennings, and rookie Latavius Murray as their top three backs. The only way they would consider signing McGahee is if they were to lose one of their currently top three backs and McGahee were still on the market at that time.

That is most likely how McGahee will find work. Most teams are settled on running backs until injury changes their situation.
