On the eve of the free agency 'legal tampering period', it appears Raiders center Stefen Wisniewski will be busy finding a new team. According to Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle, Wisniewski will not be coming back to the team.
#Raiders not only letting Stefen Wisniewski test free agent market but I’m hearing he’s not coming back. They’re looking for a new center— Vic Tafur (@VicTafur) March 6, 2015
Back in December, just before the final game of the season, Wisniewski told AP's Josh Dubow that the Raiders had made several contract offers but "nothing he was looking for".
The two sides have not been able to reach an agreement on what either side considers a fair deal, so they will now part ways.
Wisniewski joined the Raiders as a 2nd round pick in the 2011 draft. He has been the Raiders' fulltime starting center the past three seasons. His uncle Steve played left guard for the Raiders for his entire 12-year NFL career from 1989-2001 and returned as assistant offensive line coach for the 2011 season.
