Raiders' Darren McFadden expected to test free agency

Oakland Raiders general manager Darren McFadden told beat writers this week that running back Darren McFadden is expected to test the free agent market.

That's a nice way of saying, good luck with your new team.

"Darren's going to be a free agent and there's been communication with his agent," McKenzie said. "He's going to see what his market is. And that's the thing, when you're talking about the games that he's missed, he has no idea -- and when I say 'He,' I'm talking about his agent -- he has no idea what his market value will be and I couldn't tell you what the other 31 teams think."

McFadden, 26, has been sidelined for 19 of the Raiders' last 41 games due to injuries and has never had a completely healthy season.

In 10 games last season, he rushed for 379 yards and averaged 3.3 per carry.

The Raiders may bring back free agent running back Rashad Jennings, who rushed for 733 yards and six touchdowns last season.
