Raiders Work Out S Jermaine Whitehead

Dismissed from the Browns after several Twitter comments following their Week 9 loss to the Broncos, Jermaine Whitehead visited Oakland on Monday. The Raiders worked out the free agent safety, Adam Caplan of Sirius XM Radio tweets.

No one claimed Whitehead after the Browns waived him, but he had started every game this season. The former Packers safety has 10 career starts since arriving in the NFL as a UDFA in 2015.

Whitehead joined cornerback DeShawn Shead for this workout. The Raiders recently placed Karl Joseph on IR and have the versatile Lamarcus Joyner battling a hamstring injury. Joyner’s status will likely determine whether the Raiders sign Whitehead or Shead.

After starting all eight Browns games this season, Whitehead went on a Twitter tirade that ended with his banishment from the medium. The 26-year-old defender responded to multiple tweets and Instagram comments criticizing his performance against the Broncos. This season, he’s made 41 tackles, intercepted one pass and forced a fumble.

    His hair doesn’t look white to me.
    Or does the WHITEHEAD refer to a complexion issue ??
