Punter Shane Lechler, whose average of 45.7 yards per punt is the highest in NFL history, will visit the Houston Texans on Thursday, the Houston Chronicle reported.
The seven-time Pro Bowler was a high school star as a quarterback and punter and played in college at Texas A&M.
If Lechler leaves the Raiders, he would be the seventh of 17 unrestricted free agents to find work elsewhere, joining Philip Wheeler (Dolphins), Desmond Bryant (Browns), Brandon Myers (Giants), Mike Goodson (Jets), Matt Shaughnessy (Cardinals) and Mike Mitchell (Panthers).
Mitchell made his future known Wednesday on Twitter, thanking the Raiders and saying he looked forward to his opportunity with Carolina.
Lechler, 36, had a 39.0 net punting average in 2012, his lowest since 2006, after having pre-training camp surgery on his plant leg. The Raiders, anticipating the possibility of losing Lechler to free agency, kept rookie punter Marquette King in the organization on injured reserve last season.
The Raiders announced Wednesday the first signing of one of their own free agents, bringing back right tackle Khalif Barnes.
An eight-year veteran, Barnes started nine games at right tackle last season after recovering from a torn groin muscle. He was a 16-game starter in 2011.
Barnes is versatile enough to have played in the gap and power scheme blocking the Raiders used in 2011, as well as the zone system last season.
