The Oakland Raiders are interested in signing free agent linebacker Kevin Burnett, according to Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas. 

Burnett is an eight-year veteran who has played with the Cowboys, Chargers, and Dolphins.

He recorded a career high in tackles with 109, along with 2.5 sacks in 16 games last season for Miami. Burnett started every game throughout his two-year career with the Dolphins.

The Raiders signed former Bears linebacker Nick Roach on Friday, and continue looking to bolster their defense.
