According to NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora, free agent defensive end Bobby McCray worked out with the Oakland Raiders on Wednesday.

McCray, who signed with the Saints in 2008, was a big factor in the Saints’ 31-28 defeat of the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Championship game but will not be with the team in a rematch between the two teams tonight.

After the game, McCray was fined $20,000 by the league for alleged illegal hits on Vikings quarterback Brett Favre.

After being waived by the Saints in a surprise move on June 21, McCray was resigned on July 22 but really didn’t perform very well and was cut during the final roster cuts on September 3 after the emergence of the young and talented pass rusher, Junior Galette.

McCray’s career began after the former Florida Gator was drafted in the seventh round of the 2004 NFL draft by the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Also in former Saints’ player news, former Saints defensive tackle Al Woods was signed to the practice squad of the Pittsburgh Steelers after being waived by the Saints.

Woods, a former LSU Tiger, was drafted in the fourth round of this year’s draft but failed to show that he could help the team significantly.
