According to a report, the Oakland Raiders are scheduled to visit with free agent offensive lineman Kevin Boothe.
Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports reported via Twitter:
OL Kevin Boothe in to visit the Raiders today because of course. This Giants-Raiders free-agent swap meet is crazy. Boothe a former Raider.

Boothe started all 16 games for the New York Giants in each of the last two seasons, splitting time in 2013 between center and left guard. In all, Boothe started 48 games for the Giants, with whom he had played since 2007.
It would be Boothe’s second stint as a Raider. He was drafted by Oakland in the sixth round out of Cornell in 2006 and made 14 starts at right guard as a rookie, but was waived the following spring.
Boothe graded out very poorly last season, according to Pro Football Focus, particularly in the seven games he started at center. But he was durable, playing all but five offensive snaps for the Giants in 2013.
