Florida has become the place of broken dreams for the Raiders in free agency. Reports on Sunday said the Raiders were expected to land Dolphins defensive tackle Jared Odrick, but the top free agent target has decided to stay instate with the Jaguars according to multiple reports. The Dolphins have replaced Odrick's position with Ndamukong Suh -- the biggest free  agent on the market -- and are therefore letting Odrick sign elsewhere.

The Raiders were among three teams in talks with Odrick's camp, and he was expected to fetch around $7 mil per season, which is said to be exactly what Odrick received from the Jaguars.

This makes the third top free agent target who the Raiders has shown interest to head to the Sunshine state and the second set to sign with the Jaguars. The other is tight end Julius Thomas who got a deal worth a reported $9 million per season. The Raiders have since set their sights on tight end Jermaine Gresham.

As for who the Raiders will look to at defensive tackle, Terrance Knighton is the expected target. He had made it clear this offseason he would be interested in following Jack Del Rio to Oakland should he reach free agency.
