The day after Raiders head coach Jon Gruden and owner Mark Davis took in the Warriors win over the Spurs, a report has surfaced linking the club to a free-agent running back.

Gruden has previously expressed an interest in bringing back Marshawn Lynch, but is apparently doing his due diligence as he works to build the offense around centerpiece Derek Carr.

After running for 1,402 yards and making the Pro Bowl in 2015, Martin has been far less productive over the past two seasons, totaling 421 yards and 406 yards, respectively. Martin turned 29 in January.
