The Oakland Raiders will meet with free-agent linebacker Zach Brown, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports, citing a source.

Brown, a former second-round pick of the Tennessee Titans, is testing the open market after enjoying a breakout season on a one-year contract with the Buffalo Bills.

The 27-year-old earned the first Pro Bowl appearance of his career after racking up 149 tackles to go with four sacks and one interception.

An upgrade at the inside linebacker spot has long been considered a priority for the Raiders heading into the offseason, and Brown would certainly fit that description if the 2016 season is a sign of things to come.

Oakland is looking to improve upon its 26th-ranked defensive showing to complement an offense that’s quickly become one of the league’s most explosive scoring units.
